The Modern Day Beethoven: Ludwig Göransson
There are a lot of great performers in the world today and maybe even more musicians. The often forgotten members of the musical tribes have to be the composer. Those individuals that bring all of it together. The entire body of work for albums, movie scores, and orchestras needs cohesion and fluidity. The composers are the ones come in and bring it all to life. The composer we will be discussing is one of my personal favorites: Ludwig Göransson.
Ironically enough, Beethoven's first name was also Ludwig. Maybe Mr. Göransson had his destiny in the stars long before he was born. The comparison to Beethoven may come off as bold, crazy even, but once you listen to Ludwig Göransson's catalog, you'll see why it's not that much of a long shot. The potential for him to take his place in the annals of history is there. Time will determine the rest.
Ludwig G. is also partially responsible for a majority of Childish Gambino's most popular records. This includes the newest album "Awaken, My Love!", Because the Internet in 2013 and Camp in 2011. Some of his production credits include "Fresh, Produce" and "Dollar Store " by PELL and "That's Love (Interlude)" by Chance The Rapper. Ludovin has provided the musical composition for the hit TV shows Community, New Girl, and Happy Endings.
Ludovin is now working with the entertainment giant known as Disney. The musical score he provided for on the new Disney short film, Inner Workings, is phenomenal.
Side note: The whole short film Inner Workings is pretty amazing actually.
From supplying production for albums and TV shows to providing music for the big screen, it is clear Mr. Göransson is heading in the right direction. When you're doing all the right things, the right people will notice. Oh, and did I mention that he signed to Roc Nation as a composer?
If Wolfgang Amadeus was alive today, I'd bet he would tell his wife "Stanzi, Stanzi! Look out for that boy. One day he'll give the world something to talk about!" The exact words he said about the original Ludwig.
