I am a Swedish sounddesigner based in Gothenburg, Sweden but with the world as my workplace.
Though I do have a special fondness for the hyperreal, gritty and surrealistic, I do not work for my own sake, I work to give the audience the highest possible experience from my movies and fulfill my part in the director's vision of the project as a whole. To reach this result one has to balance the thin line between the realistic and the extreme without ever neither breaking the illusion of reality, nor letting it get boring. I can by all means work by myself if I have to, but I work absolutely best in close collaboration with the directors and such to reach their specific vision the best way possible.
I take pride in high dynamics in my work, often meaning mixing extreme high-end and state of the art with some extreme low-end elements to reach a vivid, lively and good sounding soundscape striving to keep the audience sharp throughout the film.
