He has since scored all of Coogler’s films. ∙ Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino) met Göransson on the set of the TV show Community and asked him to coproduce his debut album, Camp. ∙ For the movie Creed, he recorded ambient sound at a Philadelphia boxing gym and worked it into the score. ∙ In 2019, Göransson’s score for Black Panther won him both an Academy Award and a Grammy Award. ∙ Göransson coproduced the band HAIM’s breakthrough EP, which hit No. 1 on the Billboard Dance chart. ∙ Göransson locked himself in his studio for a month while composing the score for the Star Wars spin-off TV series The Mandalorian.
