Called "a haunting artist to watch" by Rolling Stone, Alexandra Petkovski is an award-winning composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist, artist, and songwriter from Toronto, Canada - creating genre-defying music exploring contemporary polytextural, orchestral cinematic, hybrid-synth, trailerization, and vocalise sonic spaces. Above all, Alex loves to tell compelling stories through music

A 2023 Hollywood Music in Media Awards nominee (and 2022 HMMA Winner), first place award winner for the 2023 World Trailer Awards, multi-nominee for the 2023 Music + Sound Awards, 2023 Guild of Music Supervisors Canada Awards Artist/Songwriter of the Year nominee, awarded winner for SOCAN’s 2023 and 2022 Emerging Screen Composers Awards and 20th Annual Game Audio Network Guild Awards, Alex has collaborations with artists like Kimbra, Aimeé Osbourne, and Tommee Profitt, and her music is heard across platforms like Fortnite, Grey’s Anatomy, SXSW, Disney+, TIFF, Blumhouse Productions, Netflix, and HBO. Alex is the lead composer for Future Chicken; a new animated universe led by Catherine Winder (former executive producer of Lucasfilm animation; Ice Age, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Angry Birds).

Alex's artist project, FJØRA, has become widely known throughout the Film/TV/Video Game worlds. Her coined genre - "cinematronic" - combines elements of electronic and cinematic styles. This is heard throughout her work across Film, TV, video games, commercials, such as music for “Welcome to the Blumhouse” (a reimagination of 4-Non Blondes hit song, “What’s Up,” as personally requested by Linda Perry), Paris Olympics 2024 Campaign (Globo TV), theme song "Déjà Vu" for video game Deathloop (as heard in remixes by artists like Steve Aoki, Future and Madison Beer), custom music for international campaigns by Adidas Women and Donna Karan New York and score work for Grammy-winning composer Stephanie Economou (like on Gillian Jacobs’ Disney/Lucasfilm feature documentary, “More Than Robots” - premiering at SXSW, streaming on Disney+). Alex recently custom created the song “Together Forever” for the Paramount+ feature film Monster High 2.

On the Recording Academy’s Grammy ballot under “Best Arrangement: Instrument and Vocals”for her work on the Sondheim Series (a reimagination project honouring the life and legacy of Stephen Sondheim, which she was composer, producer, arranger, orchestrator, songwriter and artist), Alex is a huge advocate for women and underrepresented presence throughout the music industry, striving to foster awareness for inclusivity and diversity in each project she undertakes. Alex is the author of New Music USA’s “Managing Rapid-Fire Deadlines for the Aspiring and Evolving Music Creative,” a published article outlining helpful methods for working within the current music industry landscape. 

Alex is proud to serve as a director on the Alliance for Women Film Composers board of directors, an Officer on the leadership board for the Screen Composers Guild of Canada, is a proud standing voting member of the Recording Academy, BAFTA Connect, Television Academy, Society of Lyricists and Composers, World Soundtrack Awards, and is a composer in residence alumni with the Canadian Film Centre (chaired by Lesley Barber) and Los Angeles Film Conducting Intensive alumni (working under the guidance of William Ross). A Grammy’s #NEXTGen 2023 leader (Los Angeles chapter), Alex was a mentee under Siddhartha Khosla (This is Us, Only Murders in the Building). As a director with the AWFC, Alex spearheaded the AWFC’s inaugural Film Music Mixer during TIFF event; a celebration of the vibrant community of women, women-identifying and underrepresented voices in the film industry coming together during the 2023 Toronto International Festival. Preparations for the 2024 AWFC TIFF Event are underway.
