Hi let me introduce myself. My name is Frank Johansen and I am a composer/writer.
I was born in 1981 in Sweden; however my mother is from Norway and my father is the one from Sweden. My mother chose for me to be a Norwegian citizen and hey! I guess I still am, although I see myself more as a world citizen because I view the whole world as one place for us all.
As A composer I aim at creating original music and my goals are to composer for video games and give them that nostalgic feeling you get from the classic games where music was a vital part of the experience and not just some atmospheric nonsense.
Because I am a fan of movies and video games I wanted this album (A.M.D Dimensional Distortion) to accurately follow the events both lyrically and instrumentally.
I let the songs follow the story and progress within themselves trying to go beyond making a “Song” and more of a moving picture of the events they represent without repeating much. This creates a beginning and an end feeling with recurring parts and themes as in a movie score composed differently.
