2019 – A Good Year

2019! It’s been awesome!

I have been working on lots of inspiring, exciting and interesting projects with many great people this year.
Building the Production Company Tulpa Creatives has been demanding and very awarding. We have several projects in development. We are looking forward to 2020 were we will be producing several projects (more on those later on). It’s so much more I could say about this, but I need to keep the lid on for now.

2019 I have finally taken the leap into Digital Releases and 7 albums were released on different labels. Make sure to check out my artist page on Spotify and follow (and of course listen).

My score for The Huntress: Rune of the Dead was completed and released the same day as the film had it’s premier in October. The score has been competing on two festivals, winning on one and been nominated on another. The score has also been given great reviews. I was also one of the Producers of the film and have won awards for that too.

Finally the work I made as a Composer and Producer for Svenska Budo & Kampsportsförbundet was released, I composed the music to a Drama/Comedy TV-series Pilot, made 5 commissioned pieces for Riotminds Trudvang Chronicles: Muspelheim, Produced and Composed music for a commercial and composed music for Podcast’s such as Red Moon Roleplaying.

Together with Joel Forssell I composed the music to the Feature Vitt Skräp (White Trash) that’s finally completed – after many years of getting funding for post-production. The film should have a Theatrical release 2020. With Joel I also had the podcast Musik i Film which I put on ice to work on another podcast which will kick off in 2020 too.

For the second year I hosted and was the chairman of the jury of Film Music Live Festival. I love to be part of that production and looking forward to being involved in it growing.

My work within Distributing and Executive producing has been developed further and I have had the pleasure to work on a couple of films together with Lucky Dogs and my international Distributors/Sales Agents.

I have also been a commentator on three MMA events, two for American TV (Superior Challenge) and one for Aftonbladet (Bulldog Media Fight Night 2.0). I have also been a permanent member of Fighterpodden which is recorded at Bauer Media (DN-huset).

Thanks to everyone who I have worked with this year!

Merry Christmas and a happy new year

Wonderful Reviews of The Huntress: Rune of the Dead Soundtrack

The Score I made for “The Huntress: Rune of the Dead” have been given love from many media outlets all over the World. I am very greatful for it. Here are some qoutes from the Reviews:

“There is a dark and deep almost guttural pulsating and ominous sound to the score, with even the more melodious moments including an underlying sense of uneasiness. The composer also gives the work a folk or rustic sound via the instrumentation he brings into play to create a dramatic but at the same time a pleasing soundtrack. The score also features the work of Swedish Artist and performer who Mohlavyr places her own unique sound upon the work which is ethereal and alluring. The track THE VIKING FAMILY is probably the best cue in which to hear the combined efforts of the composer and artists Runberg and Mohlavyr. It is a haunting and very enjoyable listening experience, with subtle musical colours and an assortment of textures combining to fashion an attractive and somewhat hypnotic sound. There are numerous sounds and styles within this work, it has to it a subtleness in places, and intimacy and fragility, but there is also a raw, driving and hard-hitting musical entity that raises its head every so often to great effect. The combination of so many sounds and styles make for a soundtrack that is innovative and entertaining.”

Completed the score for Vitt Skräp (White Trash)

After five years in the making. Me and my fellow composer on this score, Joel Forssell, did a version of this score for some 4 years ago but as the edit changed and the look as well, we and the director felt that we needed an almost completely new score. Only 3-4 cues (of 41) was kept from the earlier version and during august and September we have finished the new score for this Crime/Thriller set in a small town in Sweden during the 80s.
Now we have handed the score over to the celebrated and esteemed Sound mixer/editor/designers Ken Skoglund and Lasse Liljeholm.

Plot: In a Swedish town in the 80s, two strangers ends up by accident in the middle of a drug deal.
