Petra Salsjö is an Australian film and TV composer. She specialises in creating scores that blend both acoustic and electronic elements with a mix of world musical instruments.
Since 2022 Petra has been working on the series Crazy Fun Park (ABC iVIEW) and Love Me Season 2 (Warner Bros US /Binge Australia). Both shows are currently on air in Australia.
Petra’s roles have slightly differed on both shows. For Crazy Fun Park Petra wrote additional cues and for Love Me she was co-composer working with established composer Cornel Wilczek (and another contributing composer Tom Rouch). Petra is now doing additional cues for the new season of Surviving Summer (Netflix).
Concurrently with these commissions Petra received a very special initiative from Screen Australia 'Credit Maker' – This is specifically designed for women who are highly skilled and experienced as a support to step into the commercial world of film making and TV. Particularly in areas where there is a very low percentage of female practitioners... Screen Composition is down there with Cinematographers. The initiative secured a placement for Petra on Love Me Season 2.
