MEET Johan

Johan Tronestam is a composer who lives on the Åland Islands in the Baltic Sea.

He has a passion in creating instrumental synth music of different shapes. The work takes place in his own studio. Before his great interest in instrumental electronic music he played keyboard in various rock and pop groups, which has been very beneficial for the range in his musical creations.


Johan also has experience of studio work and many years as a sound engineer on concerts, from club gigs to concerts with thousands of spectators. He had some important sound technician assignments, where for example a royalty has inaugurated an exhibition and on one occasion where a concert was performed for a president.

As of today he has completed nine albums. 14 CD albums and 5 digital. He has received two scholarships from the Government of Åland for releasing music on CD.


The old school of electronic music, progressive rock and experimental music have been a great influence in making his music.


Johan has managed to create a musical style as recognizable as his own.
