Patrick Jonsson - Composer

Patrick Jonsson is a film composer living and working in London, UK. Originally from Sweden and Poland, Patrick has grown up in various parts of the world and spent most of his childhood living in Malaysia.

He is a graduate of Berklee College of Music in Boston (2007) and was selected to attend the Berlinale Talent Campus in 2009.

In 2013, Patrick scored his first feature films, including Bends directed by Flora Lau, which had its premiere as part of the official selection for 'Un Certain Regard' at the Cannes International Film Festival where the music was praised in Variety: "Sparse dialogue and haunting music lend an alienating effect; other craft contributions are also excellent." Patrick went on to receive a nomination for 'Best Original Film Score' for Bends at the Taipei Golden Horse Awards 2013.

Most recently, he composed music for feature documentary Virunga directed by Orlando von Einsiedel which had its world premiere at Tribeca Film Festival 2014 as part of the World Documentary Competition selection.

He has also composed music for numerous short films, documentaries and commercials, including the award-winning short film Skateistan: to Live and Skate Kabul which was an official selection at Sundance and SXSW.

Patrick has additionally assisted composers on a number of feature films such as Thor, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, My Week With Marilyn, Brave, Gambit, and The Imposter.

In addition to his film scoring work, Patrick runs a company called Ignition Sound.
