Lisa Montan

Lisa Montan is a composer and artist based in Stockholm, and is the first woman to have everreceived a Swedish Guldbagge Award for her score to the film Flocking (2015). It was her first feature film score. For the same film she was also awarded Best Score at Festival International du film d’Aubagne and the Doris Filmgenipris for Best Score. The jury described her work; ”her composition demand the audience’s full attention to the film’s thematics and core, whilst at the same time they are extremely unique and incredibly beautiful.”

Montan´s compositions have quite often sacred and ceremonious qualities to them, embedding themselves in fabric of the film and unearthing parallel narratives. Recent works include scores for Abbe Hassan´s political drama feature “Exodus” produced by B-Reel, Malou Reymann´s period drama “Utstyrling” produced by Nordisk Film, and SF Studios beloved children´s saga “LasseMajas Detektivebyrå” directed by Tina Mackic.

Apart from Flocken she won awards for “Allt Jag Inte Minns” by Beata Gårdeler (Ria Award for best score to a TV show), “Guld” by Abbe Hassan (Stockholm Film Festival best original score), “Vi Bara Lyder” by Erik Holmström and Fredrik Wenzel (Amsterdam International Documentary Film Festival Special Jury Award).

A true multidisciplinary and creative collaborator, Lisa has brought her same intensity to visual mediums, having got her start in film working with costume and set design as well as holds many active collaborations with writers and tactile / visual artists.
