Peter Albrechtsen

Sound designer, music supervisor and writer. Born 3/7 1976, Denmark. Educated in sound at the National Film School of Denmark, 2001.

Peter Albrechtsen grew up in a home with a piano, classical music and Beatles records. He played classical piano from childhood and in rock bands as a teenager.

Albrechtsen went to the European Film College in 1995-96, where he discovered his passion for film sound. At the college, he also met director Christina Rosendahl with whom he has worked together with ever since. His first feature length film was Rosendahl's documentary "Stargazer" (2002).

As a sound designer on numerous features, he has made notice with, among others, Simon Staho's "Day and Night" (2003), Kaspar Munk's "You & Me Forever" (2012), Fenar Ahmad's "Flow" (2014) and Bo Mikkelsen's "What We Become" (2016), for all of which he was nominated for a Robert Award for Best Sound. Furthermore, he's worked as a sound effect editor on large-scale features like Lars von Trier's "Antichrist" (2009) and Niels Arden Oplev's "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" (2009).

In 2016, he received both a Robert Award and a Special Bodil Award and was rewarded by the Danish Arts Foundaton for his sound design on Christina Rosendahl's "The Idealist".

Albrechtsen has been equally active working on both Danish and international documentaries. Highlights include festival favorites like Lise Birk Pedersen's "Putin's Kiss" (2012), Lauren Greenfield's "The Queen of Versailles" (2012), Bill Morrison's "The Miners' Hymns" (2010), Katja Gauriloff's "Canned Dreams" (2011), David Alvarado and Jason Sussbergs "Bill Nye: Science Guy", which he mixed at George Lucas's Skywalker Ranch in Californien, and Michael Madsen's "The Visit", which was specially selected to IDFA in 2015 because of its soundtrack. In 2012, he received CPH:DOX' Sonic Dox Award for his work on Camilla Magid's "White Black Boy".

Throughout the years, Peter Albrechtsen has worked on several international productions. Among the most renowned are Juho Kuosmanen's Finnish "The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Mäki," winner of Un Certain Regard in the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, Ralitza Petrova's Bulgarian "Godless," winner of the Golden Leopard at the 2016 Locarno International Film Festival plus several other awards, and Pål Sletaune's "Babycall," winner of the Norwegian Amanda Award for Best Sound in 2012. In 2017, he contributed with supplementary sound effects to Christopher Nolan's "Dunkirk" and Joachim Trier's "Thelma".

In addition to his film production work, Peter Albrechtsen is a diligent and passionate communicator of his craft. He has taught at the National Film School of of Denmark, Sonic College in Haderslev and The Animation Workshop in Viborg and given talks about film sound at IDFA in Amsterdam, Doc House in London, South by Southwest in Texas and Ambulante in Colombia. He has worked as a music writer and critic, film sound columnist, radio host and sound designer on radio features and columnist.
