Johan Holmström’s Lo-Fi Masterpiece

BBC World Service

October 2018

Johan Holmström’s music is heard by millions of people every day but very few would know his name, what he looks like, or be able to give you the title of one of his compositions. That is because Johan is the resident composer and sound designer at King, the makers of the incredibly successful Candy Crush – a social game that has been installed over 1.7 billion times around the globe.

Downton Abbey composer, John Lunn, joins Johan and follows every step of his creative process. Together, they discover how creating music for TV and film compares with scoring for social games.
