Welcome! Simon Kölle is a Swedish composer for CDs, Films, TV and Multimedia. Simon is a multi-talented and critically-acclaimed musician and has been released on several labels all over the world since 2000. Simon is looking to hit his stride in scoring many films and to always push the envelope in whatever genre he is composing for.
Vilsen (Ave Mater) so far got over 30 prices on film festivals and been among the official selection a lot. The latest award was won in Barcelona were Rasmus Tirzitis (editor), mine (music) and Eki Jokisalo (sound) for the trailer.
I will be working on a spin off of the super popular and Award winning game (which I composed to Music for) Conduct This! At this Point I cannot reveal the theme of the game but I am sure it will be soon. Check out this announcing video from Northplay.
Note: in the announcment video it’s only Music from the old game.
Today it’s ten years ago when one my early pieces were performed by The Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra live on Skansen in Stockholm. The performance was shown live on national Swedish TV (SVT) and watched by over a million people.
The piece were first composed by me when I was 14 (at least the tune) and then used by me and Simon Heath in the duo Za Frûmi.
2017 have been a good year so far with some commissioned work with Commercials, the release of the original soundtrack of Ave Mater (Vilsen). The completion of the Music for the internationally awarded game “Conduct This!” was inspiring and work for the Uppsala based Company “Populate” was rewarding.
The year, though started off with the long lasting collaboration with Joel Forssell as we finished White Trash (Vitt Skräp), we will go back to it one more time later on when the sound is complete, which is the only thing left to do Before mix.
As of late, I have been working on a Romantic Drama feature. I worked with an Orchestra in Lisabon and also delve into the World of oriental Music.
It is clear that I during the autumn will work with an extensive Project that I cannot reveal yet. Sorry for all the secrecy, but that’s the name of the game.
Besides the composing I am one of the founders of a Swedish interest organization called “Musik I Film” (Music in Film) which will work with spreading knowledge (about) and unity among Music in film, Theatre, media and games.
I have been a fan of MovieScore Media for a while now so it’s a very good feeling to be released on that great label. Ave Mater (Vilsen) is a score I am very proud of. Click HERE to go to MovieScore Medias page about the score.
Composing the score meant me setting out on a journey to create something dark, exciting and filled with suspense, but not horror. Rasmus was rather clear that he felt that the music should be the ‘beating heart and soul of the film’, a true guide throughout the story. To work with a couple of clear themes got important with the choir and the cello became crucial to capture the feeling of the occult.
The mobile game Conuct This! Which I composed the music for just won at International Mobile Game Awards for Best Quickplay Game of 2016. IMGA is a prestiguous award and the grand prix was won by Pokemon Go.
