Johan Van Barel (Bornem, 3 October 1964) is a Belgian composer, photographer, digital artist and multimedia engineer.

Johan Van Barel writes music for film, television and game projects, his scores breath the grandeur of the romantic and often bombastic Dimitri Tiomkin themes blended together with the bold and dark atmospheric music of Bernard Herrmann. Johan Van Barel was born in 1964. From his childhood on he was fascinated by everything related to images and sound, he becomes passionately interested in both the artistic and technical aspects of music and multimedia in general. During his engineering education, he studies Applied Arts and Photography at the art-schools of Temse and Sint-Niklaas, his multidisciplinary approach feeds his interest in both the compositional and audio-technical aspects of music creation and production. In his works, he combines contemporary elements, like loops and samples, together with classical note for note musical composition. Just being busy with images and sound is his driving force as multimedia artist.
