Svartsjön (Black Lake) säsong 2 – Teaser

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.

 

Completed Black Lake (Svartsjön) season 2

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!

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.
