"...there's a kind of intrinsic musicality to the way moving images work when they're put together. It's been said that cinema and music are very close as art forms, and I think that's true."
Music Composer & Producer for Film and television
"Irv did an amazing job when we needed to build a complete soundtrack on a project we worked on. We talked and bounced ideas, made a couple of quick tests to picture, then he tirelessly tweaked and tweaked and tweaked until a composition emerged that had elements combined from a whole world of sounds. Both the client and myself am very happy with the result."
"Irv Johnson composed the music for my first film "Boy Wonder". The music in a film is always an important part of the overall experience but in this film the music was even more critical as it defined the main character and his view of the world. Irv was invaluable in creating the tone and feel of the world I was trying to create. Irv is an extremely talented musician who delivers the highest quality music and delivers it on time. I recommend him highly for any project."
"I had the great pleasure of working with Irv Johnson, who composed the full score for my feature film "Kartellet" in 2013/14. Irv is, apart from being the nicest person, a very hard worker, who doesn't rest until you are totally happy with the result. He is creative, professional, very skilled and open to any suggestions you might have. He has my warmest recommendation."
"The thing about working with Irv is that its easy to overlook how intently he is listening to your direction and diving deep into the director's vision. "I'm here to help the director tell HIS story", Irv says a lot, and that is DIRECTLY reflected in his music. The wonderful thing is that Irv doesn't see himself as a composer, putting his music on a piece. He sees himself as a part of a storytelling team with a very specific and crucial role. As someone who hires many composers on a regular basis, I have to say that very few "get it" the way Irv does. I am remiss to recommend him because we want to keep him for ourselves!"
"Irv is a delight to work with, he listens to what you are looking for as a producer and delivers superb results on time and on budget. I look forward to working with him again."
"I've had the pleasure of working with music composer Irv Johnson on various projects ranging from DVD production to commercials. Irv has consistently delivered extremely high levels of creativity despite suffocating deadlines. He is a consummate professional who takes his work from concept through execution without missing a beat. His music is amazing and current. I highly recommend Irv for any creative music or sound design assignments."
"A true treasure in the world of music composition and production, Irv Johnson's passion for his art and his pure talent to strike just the right mood every single time are a rare find in a competitive world like the music business. I have known Irv for many years now and he has consistently raised the quality of projects we have worked on. Irv clearly has his finger on the pulse of this ever evolving music business, his attitude is always professional and he is a true pleasure to be around. I wholeheartedly recommend Irv for any project or business."
"Irv is an extremely talented and versatile composer/arranger. He's a hard worker and won't stop til' everyone is ecstatic!"
"Irv has a magnificent ear and eye for detail. His composition and musicality is extremely top-notch. I plan to use his service for future movie projects."
