Sven Faulconer, born and raised in Belgium, is a Los Angeles-based composer for film and television. He employs a wide and unique range of musical styles, as reflected in the remarkable list of credits acquired by him over the years.
In particular, a keen sense for collaboration and strong story-telling skills have earned him music credits on such blockbuster movies as The Hunger Games series, Nightcrawler, The Bourne Legacy, The Green Hornet and Parkland. His original approach in independent productions has resulted in numerous scores with a very distinctive character.
Beginning formal music training at age 8, Sven showed an early knack for improvisation and was soon writing his own pieces. Over the years he has also become a passionate clarinet player and performed a number of solo concertos with symphonic orchestra.
His studies took him on an exciting journey starting in Ghent, later moving to Rome to conclude his academic career in Los Angeles at the renowned UCLA Film Scoring Program. As always, he was driven by the powerful synergy of music and film, paired with the fulfillment that the film scoring process brought to him.
Since his move to Los Angeles, Sven has had the pleasure of learning from several A-list composers - more specifically his experience at Hans Zimmer's Remote Control Productions and his ongoing collaboration with James Newton Howard, composer of films such as The Hunger Games series, Maleficent, The Sixth Sense, The Dark Knight and I Am Legend.
