Greg M Johnson is a Los Angeles based Composer, Producer and Programmer. His approach to media scoring is defined by his love of experimental sounds and crafting bespoke scores that push the medium in unique and distinctive ways. This can be seen in his score to the ground-breaking Sci-fi series “Medinah” and the upcoming post-apocalyptic series “The Pact”.
Other television credits include the South-Korean Fantasy “Arthdal Chronicles” for tvN and Netflix; “Breaking the Chains” and “A Show About Cinema” for Al Jazeera; and the Romanian Sci-fi thriller “Three Knee Deep”.
His compositions have also been featured in award winning shorts including “Monday”, the recipient of HBO’s APA Visionaries award as well as “Best Short’ by NBCUniversal. Greg is also a frequent collaborator with the Doha Film Institute having scored half a dozen short films with a variety of up-and-coming filmmakers in Qatar.
Video games have provided him a platform for some of his most experimental work. Recently he scored the fast-paced multiplayer Sci-fi RTS “Strike Tactics’, that features a hard-hitting industrial score, as well as the upcoming action FPS for Addicting Games coming later this year.
Greg has always worked with popular hard rock acts both as a producer and a sound designer/ programmer. He did string arrangements and programming for “35xxxv” by One Ok Rock which was #1 on Billboard World Album Charts, #1 on Oricon and Billboard Japan. He’s also sound designed and programmed for We Came as Romans, Sick Puppies, Tonight Alive, Sleepwave and Our Lady Peace. He’s been a longtime collaborator with the platinum-selling industrial rock group Powerman 5000, having produced and co-written the last two albums, “New Wave” and “The Noble Rot”.
He is also a founding member of the alternative rock band, On Being Human, whose 2nd album, “In Search of Adam”, is due out at the end of 2020. On Being Human has been recognized by Hot Topic, Musician’s Friend, Gopro and CBS for their unique blend of rock and orchestral influences.
