It was first released back in 2009 on the Belgium based label Neuropa. This film was actually my first I made all the Music for and my first step into the World of Film Music for real. The film was a Featurette about violence among the youth. It bacame somewhat of an hit and it still today are shown at schools.
The film was aired on national TV 2010.
Not only was it my first soundtrack, it was also the first time I worked with the mastermind Richard Jarnhed. As I write this, me and Richard have worked together on 15 Projects and we also run a Company called Tulpa Creatives.
#ingenskitiminkropp is the hashtag and also name of the short film I produced together with Richard Jarnhed for The Swedish Budo & Martial Arts Federation back in 2016. The film, which is a drama documentary, has now been released. You can see the film HERE. I also composed the Music for the film.
I am fortunate to have worked diligently and continuously with composing music for film, tv and other projects (mostly before I switched gears to composing for tv, film and games, 2009). In the picture above are some of the projects I have composed for during the last 19 years. As a film composer I have worked professionally for 10 years now, my first album came out 19 years ago (in November).
I am now celebrating 6 years as a Film Producer and I am 100 % sure I will never stop composing music. Right now, I am about to finish my score for the “Viking Saga: Rune of the Dead”.
What a year this have been, and much more will happen 2019 as it seems. Here are some of the highlights of the year as a Composer, Film Producer and other activities.
The Swedish podcast Musik i Film (Music in Film) has the same name as the interest org. I am chariman and one of the founders of. It was supposed to only be about Composers and film Music but rather quickly it occured to me that I wanted to talk to Directors, Producers, Sound people, Actors etc. too. With the red thread though being Music. A podcast about Film Music, Game Music and the Film Industry in general. So far all episodes have been in Swedish.
I run the podcast with my friend Joel Forssell.
Head over to PODCAST and take a listen.
Finally the day has come for Svartsjön (Black Lake in English) to be released on Viaplay. Two episodes was released at the same time of a total of 8. Go to Viaplay HERE.
As you might know I composed all the Music to the second season of Svartsjön, or Black Lake as it is called internationally. In october the season premiers and Viaplay and Swedish TV3 have released a teaser.
It’s not my Music in this teaser, you have to wait to hear my score a little while longer.
I really had a blast from start to finish working with this great series! I composed the Music to all 8 episodes and worked with my wonderful friend and Tulpa-Brother Richard Jarnhed (who directed the first four episodes). I also, for the first time, worked with director Per Simonsson (who directed episode 5-8) whom I really enjoyed working with! I would love to Work with Per (and of course Richard) again!
The season will be aired in october so I will for sure get back to this later on! So many wonderful people involved in this Project!
I am still composing music for the second season of Black Lake (Svartsjön) and will go from that to compose the music (with Moneybrother) to the docuementary I produced. I have also composed the music to my long time friend Daniel Bezares’s TV-series pilot Ahmed.
During the summer (2018) the film “Viking Saga: Rune of the Dead” will be shot in Sweden. I will compose the music. Director is Rasmus Titzitis and the film is written by Faravid Svalfors af Ugglas and Rasmus Tirzitis. The film’s dialouge will be in english and film will be released worldwide by the US company behind the film called ITN. Below is a summary taken from IMDB.

Ave Mater News
Ave Mater (Vilsen) got 8.2 of 10 in the Magazine Soundtrack Dreams. Check it out and here are a couple of qoutes:
“As the main story in the movie is the occult, Simon Kolle goes on with both the choir and the cello to express that musically. I must admit the music is alluring and I want to know more, the composer manages to infuse his cues with the fascination of the occult.”
“Call me crazy but there were moments when I felt a gust of Hitchcock passing through this score, better said a gust of Bernard Herrmann like suspense. All in all “Ave mater” is an interesting listen on its own.”
“It’s little things like the way Simon Kolle uses the voices and choir throughout this score that make me want to pay attention to his future works. The way he side steps generic music and filler cues also make me really enjoy his composition. There are little exciting and unexpected nuggets of music in almost every cue. It might be my vivid imagination inspired by the music but the way “A slit throat” is constructed. sounds to me like the blood quietly flowing out of that throat.”
– Mihnea Manduteanu, Soundtrack Dreams
Ave Mater is due to be released in Japan and the date the film will air on Japanese national TV is the 4th of january 2018.
