Lasse Enerson

Lasse Enerson

Composer


Born in Hamburg, Germany , Finnish-Norwegian composer Lasse Enersen has has been creating distinctive scores to internationally recognized films and series for over a decade. Lasse earned his masters in composition from Sibelius Academy (University of the Arts Helsinki), studying with Erkki Jokinen and Paavo Heininen. In 2004, he won first prize at the international Waterworks Composers Competition for his work Agua Nocturna for Solo Cello and Mixed Choir.

Lasse is perhaps most well-known for his scores to Tom of Finland (which he scored with the Oscar-winning composer Hildur Guðnadóttir), and The Unknown Soldier (the highest grossing film in Finnish history). Enersen’s unique approach to the score, combining Nordic folk, electronic, and avant-garde idioms, caught the attention of Renny Harlin, who tapped him to score two Chinese tentpole films: Legend of the Ancient Sword and Bodies at Rest. He also scored the upcoming US production Misfits for Harlin with the composer Trevor Rabin.

Lasse has been very active scoring film and series in Europe. He recently completed the score to the upcoming release Omerta 12/6 with The Unknown Soldier director Aku Louhimies. He is scoring the second season of the Swedish series The Machinery for Anagram/Viaplay and recently finished the first season of the Finnish series Cold Courage. Lasse began his scoring career working on numerous international documentary feature films including In The Dark Room (Nadav Schirman) and Battle For Rio (Gonzalo Arijon). In his time in Los Angeles, he worked for Oscar-winner Alexandre Desplat, Remote Control Productions’ Heitor Pereira, and BAFTA-winner Abel Korzeniowski.

A self-confessed cinema buff, Enersen currently works and lives in Finland, and enjoys literature, chess, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
