The Score, me and Joel Forssell, completed in September and last night I did some final changes as the sound and music is being mixed by the great Ken Skoglund and Lasse Liljeholm. Looking forward to a theatrical release 2020.

Wonderful Reviews of The Huntress: Rune of the Dead Soundtrack

The Score I made for “The Huntress: Rune of the Dead” have been given love from many media outlets all over the World. I am very greatful for it. Here are some qoutes from the Reviews:

“There is a dark and deep almost guttural pulsating and ominous sound to the score, with even the more melodious moments including an underlying sense of uneasiness. The composer also gives the work a folk or rustic sound via the instrumentation he brings into play to create a dramatic but at the same time a pleasing soundtrack. The score also features the work of Swedish Artist and performer who Mohlavyr places her own unique sound upon the work which is ethereal and alluring. The track THE VIKING FAMILY is probably the best cue in which to hear the combined efforts of the composer and artists Runberg and Mohlavyr. It is a haunting and very enjoyable listening experience, with subtle musical colours and an assortment of textures combining to fashion an attractive and somewhat hypnotic sound. There are numerous sounds and styles within this work, it has to it a subtleness in places, and intimacy and fragility, but there is also a raw, driving and hard-hitting musical entity that raises its head every so often to great effect. The combination of so many sounds and styles make for a soundtrack that is innovative and entertaining.”

Release of Conduct This! Game Music Soundtrack

The Game, Conduct This! Began as a mobile app game created by a small indie studio in Copenhagen called Northplay. The game, inspired by railway games from the 90s, with low poly maps that’s addictive. It’s a puzzle game where you are conducting / managing a train system so that there are as few accidents as possible.

Many reviewers celebrated the graphics, calling it gorgeous and the music outstanding and that the controls are incredibly simple and intuitive, and the puzzles themselves are challenging. My Music, Northplay, wanted me to be inspired by old games from the 90s and Big Band Jazz. A fun task to tackle.

Soon the game became a hit and it won awards on some of the biggest possible award shows for games. Millions upon millions downloaded the app and Northplay started to create more games in what would become a series of games for different platforms surround Conducting trains. Also, an AR version with the focus on Western movies, a collaboration game and a game for the platform STEAM.

Commisioned themes for Trudvang Chronicles: Muspelheim

One of the most famous and biggest tabletop and roleplay games manufacturers are Riotminds and they create games such as Drakar och Demoner (Trudvang Chronicles) and Götterdämmerung (Lex Occultum). They have several very successful Kickstarter projects behind them and fans all over the world.

As I did the score back in 2012 for “Thronelander”, a Trudvang Chronicles Featurette, I came to enjoy Riotminds even more than before. I later composed the music to their book release of the book “Kabal”, the teaser of Götterdämmerung (Lex Occultum) and 2015 the Original Soundtrack with music from the featurette and also a short film “Giltes Bane” (also 2012). Since then we have been busy working on other projects, so it was a no brainer when I got contacted to compose and produce 5 pieces of music for their second complete regional sourcebook for the world of Trudvang: Muspelheim. The book focus on what’s under the surface of Trudvang, into the realm of the dwarves. This is an extensive book covering the dark and stony underworld beneath the lands of humans and elves.

My participation became official today as their Kickstarter unlocked the stretch goal “Drums of the Deep” consisting of me creating 5 Trudvang Muspelheim themes.
