What a year!


On the premier of The Perfect Weapon (2016) and The Legend of Dark Rider: The Beginning

What a year it has been for Simon Kölle!

THE MUSIC

It all began with finishing the last couple of cues for Vilsen (Ave Mater), making some additional music for the short Gola Inte, making some music to a roleplaying game, a logo and making the music for a computer game.

After doing a commercial Simon finished the music to the, later on, several award winning short “Legend of Dark Rider: The begining”, who became a hit. Composing for yet another commercial – this time Grabber screws and then start working on a app game called Conduct This! A game that’s now a huge hit and on the toplists in many countries. Simon revisited the game many month’s later to make even more music.

Then Simon finally made his Hollywood debut compsoing the music for The Perfect Weapon (2016) directed by Titus Paar who also directed Legend of Dark Rider: The Begining. Right after that Simon made some improvational music fot the Event/LARP The Solution were the participants listened to the music nonstop for 48 hours.

Simon helped his friends Pixelbeast at The Game Assembly out with composing the music to their examination computer game Zvonar.

Simon produced and composed the music for the short film #Ingenskitiminkropp which is a film about doping in martial arts. The film will be released early 2017. Director Richard Jarnhed co produced and directed the film.

Late in the summer, Simon started to compose music for americal trailers together with director Rasmus Tirzitis. A total of 6 trailers were done during the autumn. Simon also founded the trailer music group called STK Group.

Simon composed the music for two commercials for the company BEX with Titus Paar as the director.

Simon started working with Paradox Interactive on a small project that could lead to more. Director/editor Rasmus Tirzitis created the final trailer for Vilsen (Ave Mater) and Simon composed the music.

Director/writer Richard Jarnhed created 4 event films for Hotell Kung Carl and Simon both composed the music and worked with sound design on the project.

In November and December Simon, together with Joel Forssell, composed the music for Vitt Skräp (White Trash) yet again but this time with a different sound and approach. As some small changes are left to do early 2017 it will be counted as a 2017 production.

Writing and Producing

Together with long time friend Richard Jarnhed they founded the platform Tulpa Creatives which will work in many constellations and with different projects. The first Tulpa Creatives projects were the Hotel-films and the drama documentary #Ingenskitiminkropp.

Tulpa Creatives have during some time now developed a TV Series (with Henrik Summanen and Joel Forssell) and late in december Simon and Richard started yet another project together with actor and executive producer Mattias Lundberg. The two projects differ a lot in both style and scope. More information will come on www.tulpa.nu

Simon was also one of the producers of Vilsen (Ave Mater) and was responsible for making a distribution deal and much more.

Last but not least Simon kept on writing for martial arts on www.fightermag.se and worked as sports commentator.

2017

Several interesting projects are about to take form. Simon will early in 2017 compose the music for a feature film and record an orchestra in Lisabon. The developing of two different TV series will be something Simon work a lot with. Simon is open for job offers and collaborations as a composer, composer and writer. Simon’s main focus is always composing though but the love for writing and producing are close second.

 

Music for games

Simon have revisited the wonderful game Conduct This on which he composed the soundtrack for back in in march/april. The game needed four versions of one of the two major themes. This app game might very well become a hit!

Simon has also made some Music for Paradox Interactive. Due to the contract nothing can be revealed right now.

Music to Computer Game Zvonar

“The demons of the forest have fallen into a deep slumber, and it’s up to the little forest spirit to wake them… with huge bells!”

Simon kept his promise to compose music to the friends Pixelbeast at The Game Assembly and Zvonar is their grand examination game at the school. Zvonar is inspired by games such as Ori and the Blind Forest. The result is a stunningly beautiful game with music that touches the soul.

Zvonar is a magical sidescroller adventure based on Slavic mythology and legend. All of the demons of the forest have fallen into a deep slumber, and it’s up to the little forest spirit to wake them… with huge bells! But be careful, for there is a dragging, loathsome anger lurking about that just wants everyone to shut up and let it return to its slumber…

Music for the computer game Hateful Space

Simon keep on working with the Game Assembly and this time a funny space shooter entitled “Hateful Space”. Most of the cues was from the begining made for “Imperial Entaglement” a game that have not yet seen the light of day but is made by the same studio.

Composing for two Video Games

The Game Assembly with teams UFOmannen and DearMother has created two video games that Simon composed for.

The first game is called “The Dweller” and it’s a hack n Slash-game were the player play a Wizard who uses his talking blade and magic to hack through hordes of crunchy worms.

The second game is called Imperial Entanglement and in that game you play a Looter on a desolate desert planet were a great war once was held.

In Imperial Entanglement the main character get help from friends that can provide her with sniper cover, mortar cover, healing and more. She keep on talking with her pilot via com link during the expeditions.
