Producer Mikael Carlsson.
Soundtrack record label MovieScore Media was founded by former journalist Mikael Carlsson in November, 2005. It has released nearly 500 score albums, received one Grammy Award nomination and multiple nominations for the ‘Soundtrack Label of the Year’ award by the International Film Music Critics Association.
MovieScore Media has always focused on up and coming talent, and was the first label to recognize the quality, ambition and unique voice in composers who are now firmly established in Hollywood working on major blockbuster movies, for example Benjamin Wallfisch (Shazam!, Blade Runner 2049, It), Daniel Pemberton (Steve Jobs, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse), Pinar Toprak (Captain Marvel, Skyfire, Stargirl). While always on the look for new composers, the label also released music by well-known composers such as Michael Kamen (Back to Gaya), Marco Beltrami (1864, Mathilde), Patrick Doyle (Man to Man), George Fenton (Red Joan), Angelo Badalamenti (Stalingrad) and Basil Poledouris (The Legend of Butch and Sundance).
Since 2020, the soundtrack label business is part of Swedish registered company Carlsson Bjarnegård AB. This also houses ‘Soundtracks Live’ which is devoted to film music concerts with activities ranging from arranging and preparing concert suites of film music (clients include Marco Beltrami and Terence Blanchard) to producing film music concerts. Mikael Carlsson is also a composer in his own right, writing music primarily for choir and concert use.
