JOÃO LUÍS

Music Composer for Film & Games

 

3-time Emmy nominee composer

SHELDON MIROWITZ

"As a composer, João really got the movie and the role of music in the story telling, and that is actually rare, especially among the better composers. But most importantly, throughout the experience he made himself present to the emotional truth of the film, and he responded to it honestly. By putting himself into the music that he wrote, he elevated the score considerably."

Producer and cinematographer

REN CANGA

João is an excellent composer, we had his work feature on our award-winning short film. The topic was incredibly sensitive and we wanted music that went with it perfectly and that's what he delivered.
The emotion conveyed through the music exceeded what we expected, we were beyond delighted with the quality and his passion towards getting the feel of the music precise.

The end result is what we feel made the film successful and we're grateful we got to work with him.

"I recently worked with João. His dedication and evident passion for composition, along with his effortless director-composer dialogue, made this the first of many opportunities we will have to work together. I will always recommend someone who works with his level of professionalism and quality."

HENRIQUE SERUCA

"It really has been a pleasure working with this great composer! A great listener who manages to understand the feeling that we want to transmit and is capable of adapting and delivering!

You know you're working with great people when you start considering them your friend!"

Video-game Director of "Nocturne: Prelude"

BENJAMIN PRACY

João Luís has composed all of the combat music for my RPG Rhythm Game called Nocturne. The music he has created is absolutely fantastic. He took the time to review the story, characters and creatures of the game to create music that really matched its' atmosphere and style.

When providing feedback, João was patient, professional and able to translate my feedback into the music.

He went above and beyond my expectations.

Author of "Raising Sleeping Stones"

PRATT BENNET

João collaborated with me on an extremely challenging project- creating the first complete score for a novel, Raising Sleeping Stones, which involved creating over 100 cues and 2 hours of music -and he far exceeded my expectations in every regard. He listened and delivered whatever I asked for, but also added ideas, sounds, and themes I never would have come up with. The result is a score that is rich, complex, layered, and much better than I could have imagined.

He's fast, responsible, a good collaborator, always on deadline, and imaginative.
