Ludwig Göransson is a Swedish composer born on September 1st in 1984. He started studying music at a young age having been introduced to it by his father who was a musician. He cites having heard the heavy metal sounds of Metallica as being the inspiration for him fully embracing his musical lessons. In high school he later began to explore other genres particularly Jazz and a little bit of Classical music. After finishing college he moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career scoring music for films. He got a job as an assistant to a film composer where he worked for two years. Through the composer's connections Ludwig got his first gig as a composer himself on "Community". He is currently working on two other shows; the ABC's sitcom "Happy Endings", and the Fox sitcom "New Girl". He also has collaborated with Community star Donald Glover on the Childish Gambino album Camp. He recently released a free EP How to Find a Party on his website under the pseudonym Ludovin.
