Rasmus Zwicki


Rasmus Zwicki studied composition and music theory at the Carl Nielsen Academy of Music (2000–2006).

His compositional approach is often transdisciplinary, including words, movement, and other elements as integral parts in the making of a composition. Collaborating with filmmakers and other artists, as well as creating soundtracks for museums, radio shows and commercial enterprises, he continues to explore the interplay between his two main interests: music and everything combinable with music. Rasmus also holds a
master’s degree in composition from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London.
He has received grants from V. Makwarth & Hustru Veronika Makwarth’s Musiklegat 2005 and The Danish Arts Council, three-year working scholarship 2008–2010. Rasmus Zwicki was the grand prize winner in the 2018 Oticon’s Faculty International Film Music Competition, a composer fellow at the 2018 Sundance Institute Film Music & Sound Design Lab at Skywalker Sound, California, and the 2021 Sundance Art of Practice interdisciplinary fellowship. His works range from intimate, site specific opera to orchestral
film/TV soundtracks with a large international exposure. In his spare time he is a contributor to the online cultural commentary webzine Seismograf and has been a guest broadcaster on Danish National Radio P2.
