I have completed the music to the USA/Swedish feature film “Rune Of The Dead”. It is a strong soundtrack that I composed with mostly inspiration from the viking era. To my aid as a musician and additional composer I had the Riksspeleman (a generally recognized badge of mastery for Swedish folk musicians) Per Runberg. I also took in several other musicians. The acclaimed singer songwriter Mohalvyr sings the theme Viverja, a song built on a theme created by Producer/Script writer Faravid af Ugglas, which plays a pivotal role.
I had a blast composing the music to this score as the director/producer/editor/script writer Rasmus Tirzitis and me truly found a unique sound which blend together the different styles of the film. I also had the oppurtunity to re use a cue that I for a long time have had the intention of revisit. Thank you Rasmus for this journey. I also would like to thank Per, Faravid and the sound and music mixer Eki Jokisalo for this collaboration.
Shoutout to the cast and crew and last but not least my musicians :
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.
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.
For the Dweller mostly old compositions was used and such that has not been released but composed for other projects. On Imperial Entanglement Simon composed new music.
At the moment no second season is planned for this succesful Swedish series called Re:volt or (Re)volt. This youth series was directed by Richard Jarnhed and Simon did the music for all 10 episodes. Hundreds of teenage girls and boys (and also people from other ages) are today demanding a second season. HERE’s a link to the 10th and final episode.
The SVT PLAY youth series Re:volt has reached it’s ninth episode. In this weeks episode it’s time for the competetion in Show Jumping and things lead to the unexpected. A lot of drama and a lot of music (made by Simon Kölle).

This monday the 8th episode was presented on SVT Play and now it’s only two weeks left for the series reach it’s end (at least season 1). The last episodes are filled with Simon’s music.
