About Johnny Klimek

Australian-born composer and producer Johnny Klimek's bold, dynamic film and television scores are informed by his background in rock and electronic music as well as classic Hollywood soundtrack traditions. He achieved international pop success as a member of the Berlin-based new wave group the Other Ones during the 1980s, then became heavily involved with the city's underground techno and trance scene. Klimek began working with filmmaker Tom Tykwer and composer/musician Reinhold Heil on soundtracks, with the energetic, techno-heavy Run Lola Run (1998) emerging as a breakout hit. Klimek then became a highly in-demand film and television composer, often in collaboration with Heil and/or Tykwer. The trio's score for Cloud Atlas (2012) was nominated for Best Original Score at the Golden Globe Awards, and Klimek has won multiple ASCAP Awards. Klimek maintained his high profile with his work on the soundtrack to The Matrix Resurrections (2021).
