Completed the feature film Viking Saga – Rune of the Dead

I have completed the music to the USA/Swedish feature film “Rune Of The Dead”. It is a strong soundtrack that I composed with mostly inspiration from the viking era. To my aid as a musician and additional composer I had the Riksspeleman (a generally recognized badge of mastery for Swedish folk musicians) Per Runberg. I also took in several other musicians. The acclaimed singer songwriter Mohalvyr sings the theme Viverja, a song built on a theme created by Producer/Script writer Faravid af Ugglas, which plays a pivotal role.

I had a blast composing the music to this score as the director/producer/editor/script writer Rasmus Tirzitis and me truly found a unique sound which blend together the different styles of the film. I also had the oppurtunity to re use a cue that I for a long time have had the intention of revisit. Thank you Rasmus for this journey. I also would like to thank Per, Faravid and the sound and music mixer Eki Jokisalo for this collaboration.
