Ludwig Emil Tomas Göransson (b. 1 September 1984, Linkoping, Sweden) is a Swedish composer, conductor, and record producer.

Göransson was named after Ludwig van Beethoven. He began music lessons at a young age and went on to graduate from the Stockholm Royal College of Music. In 2007, he moved to Los Angeles to study at the University of Southern California Scoring for Motion Picture and Television program. It was at USC that Ludwig met Ryan Coogler.

Ludwig composed music for the award-winning short film Fig in 2011 (written by Alex George Pickering), which Ryan directed while at USC. The pair would eventually go on to work together on Fruitvale Station, Creed and Black Panther. Soon after graduating USC he began work assisting Theodore Shapiro. Ludwig's first break came in 2009 as the composer for the comedy Community.

For his work on the 2018 superhero film Black Panther, he won the Grammy Award for Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media and the Academy Award for Best Original Score, as well as a nomination for the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score. Göransson is also known for his work on U.S. TV series Community, Happy Endings, New Girl, and The Mandalorian.

As a producer, he has frequently collaborated with Childish Gambino, producing his studio albums Camp, Because the Internet and Awaken, My Love! among others. Göransson's producing work on Gambino's single This Is America was met with acclaim and accolades. The song earned him two Grammy Awards for Record of the Year and Song of the Year, respectively. Overall, his work with Gambino earned him six Grammy Award nominations.
