Roy Westad

Today one of Norways many talented film composers on the rise, Roy Westad started out composing for Norways largest event production company back in 2008, almost immediately establishing himself as a full-time composer. He has since written and produced countless scores for Norways biggest broadcasters and production companies. He co-founded the content agency Go Electra in 2011, as a partner and in-house film composer. In 2014, he received Gullruten (Norwegian Emmy) for Best Original Score for the television series “Jakten på Norge”.

In 2015, he teamed up with veteran composer Trond Bjerknes (El Clásico, Max Manus, Hamilton) for the score to the Norwegian survival-horror Villmark 2 (Dark Woods 2).

2016 was an adventurous year, following the first phase of work on the orchestral score for the treasure hunt movie “Benjamin Falck & The Ghost Dagger”.

As a passionate music lover, his work ranges across many film genres. With the story and format always in focus, this enables him to find just the right style, sound and size for the given score.
