About Henrik Lörstad
Henrik Lörstad is part of the vibrant Swedish music scene. He has a classical music education and is known for scoring feature films, commercials and corporate videos. He composes music for children’s films as well as thrillers.
Swedish directors say Lörstad creates powerful and poignant tunes with a touch of melancholia, at times somewhat like film composers as Ennio Morricone or Thomas Newman.
Recent Lörstad work includes composing the score to the cartoon character Bamse, a major project about a friendly teddy bear who is a household name in Sweden.
Lörstad graduated from the Royal Swedish Music Academy in Stockholm and owns HL Sound & Music. He is born 1964 in Lund, was raised in Italy and is based in Stockholm.
