Robert lanting

Robert Lanting is a media composer from the Netherlands. His fascination for sound started at age three, when he threw a brick through the garage window. When his father asked him why he did that, his answer was “I liked the sound so much.” At age 15 he started playing keys, and felt he found his way of creative expression from that day on. It wasn’t until after conservatory where he studied bass, that he accidentally discovered his love for writing music, when a friend asked him to write the title track for a short movie in 2018. That was when he knew what he was going to do for a living.

So far, Robert created music for several short movies (two nominations for best music), documentaries, podcasts, video games, and won the 2022 Evenant Composer Challenge. Next to this custom work, he writes production music for publishers like Synchronic, Jupiter Muse, and Sound Ideas.

Robert loves writing in a vast array of cinematic styles, from epic hybrid trailer tracks to intimate dramatic cues. He always strives to tailor the music to the project he is working on. Friends and colleagues describe him as kind, easy to work with and communicative. Among his many influences are Hans Zimmer, Junkie XL, Ólafur Arnalds, Ola Gjeilo, Harry Gregson Williams, John Powell, Danny Elfman, Two Steps From Hell, and Audiomachine.

In September 2023, Robert decided to step up his game by enrolling in Momentum, an intense half-year online film scoring course. He receives mentoring from teachers like Jose Cancela (5-time Emmy Award winner), Christopher Young (Spider Man), Nathaniel Blume (The Flash series), and Dirk Ehlert.
