Sven Faulconer, born and raised in Belgium, is a Los Angeles-based composer for film and television. His musical style covers a wide and unique range, which is reflected by the remarkable list of credits that he’s acquired over the years.
A keen sense for collaboration and strong storytelling skills have earned him additional music credits on blockbuster movies like The Hunger Games, Nightcrawler, Catching Fire, The Bourne Legacy, Mockingjay Part 1, The Green Hornet and Parkland. His original approach on independent productions has resulted in numerous scores with a very distinctive character.
Sven started studying music at the age of 6. He quickly developed a taste for improvising on the piano and soon began writing his own pieces. Throughout the years, Sven became a passionate clarinet player and performed a number of clarinet 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. He’s always been impressed by the powerful synergy between music & film, as well as by the fulfillment which the film scoring process brought to him.
Since his move to Los Angeles, he’s had the pleasure to learn from several A-list composers – more specifically his experience at Remote Control (Hans Zimmer’s studio) and his ongoing collaboration with James Newton Howard, composer of films like Maleficent, The Sixth Sense, The Dark Knight and I Am Legend.
