About Carl Rydlund
After completing a Bachelor’s degree in Music Composition from the University of Colorado, Carl moved to Los Angeles to study at the legendary Grove School of Music. Upon completing a two-year program in arranging and film composition, Carl started performing for record, TV, and film dates on guitar. The next ten years also included work as an arranger and as a copyist at Joann Kane Music and Disney. Since then, he has focused on film and live orchestral work as an arranger/orchestrator, conductor, and guitarist. His wide and varied experience has made him one of the most sought-after orchestrators and studio musicians in Los Angeles.
Among the many films and games Carl has orchestrated, conducted, and played guitar on over the years are: Dunkirk, Destiny 2, Halo Wars 2, Star Wars Battlefront II, Interstellar, Assassin’s Creed III, Life of Pi, Jack Reacher, The Dark Knight Rises, Inception, Fifty First Dates, and Chocolat.
