About Morten

Morten Rognskog is a versatile film score composer with a great love for films and film music.

Born in 1973 in Tromsø Norway, from a family of musicians, auto mechanics, and educators, he has worked with music his entire adult life. Best known for scoring the 2023 Oscar nominated short film “Night Ride” (Nattrikken), and the Norwegian/Swedish/Dansh 4-part docudrama “Front Fighters” (Frontkjempere), and co-writing the Portogeuse top-10 R&B hit single “Soul Mayor”.. (and he’s not even Portogeuse!)

In 2014 Morten started working with film music, and since then he has scored several short films, features, and documentaries. He specializes in narrative score for film, and can do composing & arranging, score programming, and live recording. He is a trained sound engineer and keyboard/piano player, and occationally plays his electric bass (badly). He has also composed music for commercials, podcasts, and corporate presentations.

Morten comes from a background as a recording studio engineer and pop/rock songwriter & producer. He has worked as an instrument technician for Norwegian band a-ha, and sound engineer for various recording studios in and around Oslo. His ability with adapting preferred working methods, including remote collaborations, comes naturally for Morten because of his former background as a sound engineer and his experience with working with various film directors around he world.

His biggest influences includes film composers Thomas Newman, Daniel Pemberton, James Newton Howard, Hans Zimmer, Jonny Greenwood, Vangelis, Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross, Danny Elfman, and Jóhann Jóhannson. And artists/bands/producers Peter Gabriel, Kate Bush, Nine Inch Nails, Quincy Jones, ABBA, Radiohead, Tears For Fears, Chemical Brothers, Air, The Beatles, Max Martin, M83, Trevor Horn, Nile Rodgers, Massive Attack… and many, many more.

Morten lives in Oslo Norway, with his girlfriend and their son. And he has an extensive network of top professional musicians, sound designers, and fellow composers.
