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 varied list of credits acquired by him over the years.
A keen sense for collaboration and strong story-telling skills have earned him additional music credits on movies like Aquaman, Ad Astra, Abominable, The Hunger Games series and Nightcrawler. His score for the National Geographic documentary ‘The Last Ice’ got nominated for a Critics Choice Documentary Award and his original approach in independent productions has resulted in numerous scores with a very distinctive character, including the score for the Emmy-nominated National Geographic documentary ‘Into the Okavango’, ‘Blood Father’ (Amazon), ‘Wanderland’ (Amazon Prime) and ‘Assimilate’ (Netflix).
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 became 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 (Belgium), later moving to Rome to conclude his academic career in Los Angeles at the renowned UCLA Film Scoring Program.
In addition to his own projects, Sven also has ongoing collaborations with several other composers such as James Newton Howard, Rupert Gregson-Williams, Lorne Balfe, Steve Jablonsky, Harry Gregson-Williams and Henry Jackman.
