Completed the feature film Viking Saga – Rune of the Dead

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.

Vilsen: Recording Lidingö Chamber Choir

A small part of the great choir

Simon has recorded the Lidingö Chamber Choir for the feature film Vilsen (The Loss). Arranged by friend and colleague Joel Forssell and recorded by the skilled friend Oskar Sedemark. On two occasions the choir was recorded and it will play a vital part in the score. A main theme and another theme was recorded but also lot’s of other neat stuff as chants in the vein of Omen.

The 20-25 members of the choir was lead by the great conductor Johan Holgersson. Johan’s great open and spirited attitude was fantastic and Simon like to work with this choir and Johan on many future projects if possible.

Simon like to thank the choir, Joel, Johan and Oskar from the bottom of his heart!
