Lasse Elkjaer is a Los Angeles-based Danish composer, orchestrator, and multi-instrumentalist, who was recently shortlisted for a Robert Award nomination by the Danish Film Academy, for his orchestral score for the first Danish Halloween feature film, "Forsvundet til Halloween" (2021). Elkjaer is an eclectic composer who finds inspiration in composers such as Jerry Goldsmith and Ennio Morriocone, and also in analog noise, prog-rock and contemporary modern classical music. With a personal interest in music education, Lasse frequently coaches emerging composers and musicians, and has held several international workshops in film scoring.
"Forsvundet til Halloween is a robust and totally enjoyable soundtrack that gives nods in the direction of the likes of John Wiliams, Dave Grusin, Jerry Goldsmith, Danny Elfman, and John Debney and one that you should take a listen to." - MOVIE MUSIC INTERNATIONAL. (MMI).
