My name is Johan Hermansson and I was born 1965 and raised in the north of Sweden.
Currently I'm working and living in Arjeplog.
My interest in instrumental / electronic music started when I was about 12. It was then I bought my first record, "Platinum" by Mike Oldfield.
The interest grew and I started listening to bands like Tangerine Dream, Vangelis, Jean Michelle Jarre, Kitaro, Tomita, Bjorn Json Lindh, Klaus Schulze, etc.
I loved the way these musicians could tell a story, or paint pictures in my head with music only, without interesting lyrics.
When I was between 16-18 I played drums and bass in local bands. It was not until I was around 25 I became serious about music composition. I bought my first synthesizer, a Roland D-50. A year later I bought an Atari computer and a Roland JV-30. With those and Steinberg Cubasis sequenser program I started composing my own music, and I haven't been able to stop since.
So far I have finished five albums:
"Stonereef Suite" 1995 on CD 2000.
"Journey through Middle Earth" 1996 on CD 2000.
"World Wide Web" 2000 on CD 2001.
"Outer Galactic journey" 2002 on CD 2002.
"Nightside of the City" 2006 on CD 2006.
In addition to full length albums, Johan Hermansson / Dreamscapes Production also produces, licenses and provides music for Film, Television, Software, Games, multi-media project presentations, etc.
