Martin Pedersen graduated from the Rhythmic Music Conservatory in Copenhagen, Denmark in 2009. During his studies he released the cinematic instrumental album “Reflections” which sparked his interest in film composition. Besides his studies Martin has been producing electronic music in over 20 years. His studies, musical background and experience, has given him the advantage to have a wide understanding of genres, instruments and music history – both in rhythmical and classical music. From a deep knowledge on synth programming to bowing techniques on strings. After graduating from the Rhythmic Music Conservatory, Martin has worked on feature films, documentaries, tv-shows, commercials and dance performances. Moving his focus more and more towards fiction.
His sound is primarily electronic fused with acoustic instruments and electronically treated organic sounds. Always trying to come up with new ideas within that cross field with each project. Often with a melancholic or darker mood.
Martin was awarded in 2017 and 2018 by the Danish Arts Foundation to continue his artistic work and his latest score for What Will People Say has received accolades in the press and the film won the New Auteurs prize at AFI (Amercian Film Institute) and The Audience Dragon Award (a.o.). And selected as Norway’s official Oscar nominee 2019 for ‘Best Foreign Language Film’.
