Who We Are

We’re Joshua Crispin and Arn Andersson, together we’ve got over a decade of experience in this industry and have had our music featured in everything from Hollywood movie trailers, video games, and advertisement campaigns, to releases with world class orchestras and DJ’s.

For the past 3 years we’ve worked closely together on a multitude of projects, and we’d like to pass down all the invaluable lessons we’ve learned in our careers through both trial and error as well as amazing mentors in order to help others entering this industry.

Learn from our wins, avoid our mistakes.

A Toolkit To Level Up Your Music

After I mastered the basics of orchestral writing and production, I was struggling to find ways to get to the next level with more interesting melodies, track structures, harmonies, and textures.

That's why I made this course, to be a comprehensive resource of next level techniques spread across digestible videos.

From making your melodies more memorable and turning one melody into a dozen different themes, to expanding your harmonic language with borrowed chords, chromatic mediant modulations and powerful voicings & inversions, to mastering the use of different modes or scales.

We'll explore how to create deeper and more textured orchestrations from scratch, runs and embellishments, orchestrating HUGE statements, lush and velvet-y textures a la Thomas Newman, and everything in between.

You'll also learn practical principles for creating more engaging track structures, making your track finales feel even bigger, and building longer dynamic musical journeys beyond just 4 minutes.

Every lesson is focusing on a specific topic that you can utilize immediately, making it fit perfectly into your workflow.

In This Program, You'll Discover


- The Process to Create Highly Licensable tracks in Any Genre
- Breakdowns of tracks from campaigns like Fortnite that gathered 50m+ streams
- 7 Common Mistakes that get your tracks rejected, and how to avoid them

From 0 to 6 Figures
- A Case Study

One of the highlights of this course is our case study on how we took an anonymous side project from scratch, to earning 6-figures in less a year.

In that year alone, our tracks generated over $140,000 in revenue, without any marketing or really a lot of effort.

No marketing, no existing names attached, no extreme hours put in …

Simply focusing on quality music, and staying true to the 7 pillar framework we break down in these videos. We’ll also break down all the best performers and dissect what they have in common, look at the issues with the least successful, and show you the most important takeaways.

Frequently asked questions

How long do I get access to my course?

How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this content for as long as you like – across any and all devices you own.

What do I need in order to take this course?

You can get started with very little! However, all of our courses require a computer and internet connection to access, and some software and/or hardware. For our Music courses, you'll need a DAW (like Ableton, Cubase, Logic, FL Studio or Studio One), and a computer powerful enough to handle these programs.

For our Design courses a drawing tablet is required. Anything beyond these basics is pretty much up to how much one wants to invest into the gear and software.

What if I'm not happy?

We have a very strict policy that we only want happy students. That's why we give you 21 days to try out all the courses, completely risk free. If for ANY reason you're not happy during this period, simply let us know and we'll give you every penny back, no questions asked. We're a platform by creatives for creatives, and if we can't provide tremendous value to you, we don't want your money.

Will I get feedback on my work?

As a part of the Evenant platform, you get access to private groups where you can get feedback on your music from other students and professional tutors, or ask questions about the industry etc. You can utilize our Discord as well where we are active on a daily basis.
