Petri Alanko (aka Lowland) is a BAFTA nominated Finnish composer, musician and producer. His dynamic repertoire ranges from the haunting orchestral/electronic score for Remedy Entertainment’s psycho-thriller, Alan Wake, to elegant and sophisticated classical arrangements for Imaginaerum The Movie, based on the album by symphonic metal band Nightwish. His latest opus is the twisted and ominuous electronic sci-fi score for Remedy’s next cinematic blockbuster, Control (composed in co-operation with Martin Stig Andersen), and he composed music for Remedy’s critically acclaimed Quantum Break, filled with beautiful haunting and electronic thematic works. Several other titles are currently waiting for their release. Alanko’s solo album, “We’ve Been Here Before”, under his moniker “Lowland” was released in 28th August, 2018.
