Hectic times

 

I love to work and both to compose, write, develope and produce. As I am working hard with finishing Svartsjön (Black Lake) I have also shifted up a gear as a Film Producer. In the middle of January I sent a team, lead by the director Titus Paar, to Colombia. Along with the team came the famous swedish musician Moneybrother (Anders Wendin). They stayed in Colombia for two weeks helped out building a school in the jungle, gave away soccer shoes to kids in Bogota and much more. It will end up being a documentary in the end. As they were there they, rather spontaneous, made a music video which was released on Expressen the other day.

I am also working with development of several other projects ranging from a TV-series to features and also another documentary.

I am now looking for interesting composing jobs that I can dive into after I have completed the TV-series in may.

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.

 

Simon producing and scoring an Anti Doping Film


Simon is producing an anti doping film for Svenska Budo- och kampsportsförbundet with the director Richard Jarnhed. Simon will also compose the music for the film and actors/participants are among others Sanny Dahlbeck (as himfelf), David Nzinga, Erik Bolin and Janni Larsson (as herself).

2016 is the year

Without jinxing things; 2016 seem to become a great year for Simon Kölle. Simon is right now composing the score for an international feature film (more about it later) and a Pilot (Dark Rider).

The score for Vilsen (Swedish indiependent feature in the Nordic Noir genre) was completed 2015 but it’s possible that Simon need to revisit it one last time early 2016.

The  score for the feature Vitt Skräp (White Trash) will be completed together with Joel Forssell during 2016.

More than that Simon is looking to hit his stride in scoring even more project’s and are always open to take on new challenges. Continue reading

Leaving MMAnytt.se, Tengil, Writing, Composing

After two years of hard work with MMAnytt.se it’s time to move on. The website is still a friend of Simon but writing and working with MMA will be done on another place, from now on, called Kimura.se. Simon was one of driving forces to make MMAnytt.se become the most visited website about Mixed Martial Arts in all of Scandinavia with more than 500.000 unique visitors every month.

Right now Simon is very busy working with his book and his main profession: composing. Recently, also, Simon begun helping a swedish folk rock oriented music group called Tengil. Tengil have deep ties with Cultus Ferox, Corvus Corax and Wolgemut and Simon is working as Tengil’s manager and also mixing and mastering the music.

Other than that Simon is working dilligently with his book and of course, as mentioned before, with composing. A couple of film project are lining up but nothing is set in stone yet other than that Simon will work with the director Richard Jarnhed. More info will be revealed soon.
