Jo Blankenburg is a German composer based in Los Angeles. He writes music for film and motion picture advertising. Some of his most popular tracks have been used in the advertising campaigns of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, X-Men: First Class, and How To Train Your Dragon among many others.
At the age of six he started playing the organ, piano and drums. Even though playing existing music was how he started out, it soon became clear he wanted to create his own music and not having to stick to rules and structure fascinated him most.
