I have started to work with composing for a very popular Swedish major TV-series. I will be doing all the episodes of the series. Stay tuned for more info.
I have been a fan of MovieScore Media for a while now so it’s a very good feeling to be released on that great label. Ave Mater (Vilsen) is a score I am very proud of. Click HERE to go to MovieScore Medias page about the score.
Composing the score meant me setting out on a journey to create something dark, exciting and filled with suspense, but not horror. Rasmus was rather clear that he felt that the music should be the ‘beating heart and soul of the film’, a true guide throughout the story. To work with a couple of clear themes got important with the choir and the cello became crucial to capture the feeling of the occult.
Simon just won the award of recognition for the score to Vilsen (Ave Mater). The film also won prize for best picture and best director (Rasmus Tirzitis).
Vilsen (Ave Mater) was nominated in the category of Best foreign picture, but still won the Best picture with 100′s contribution to compete against. The film festival is called Hollywood International Moving Pictures Film Festival (HIMPFF) and is held several times during the year. In January 2017 all the winning entries of 2016 will compete in a large ceremonies contest.
Simon is greatful and happy and this will give him a great push with finishing the score of Vitt Skräp (White Trash) in just a couple of days.
Simon’s first Hollywood score is completed after a super creative month! Simon is happy to announce that the Swedish band Kite will appear in the film with a song written for the film. The Perfect Weapon is directed by Titus Paar who is super happy with Simon’s score.
It’s a dream come true and everyday I was composing I felt inspired. I have recently composed three feature film scores (Vilsen, Vitt skräp [with Joel Forssell], The Perfect Weapon ) no one have heard and I am starting to get very excitied for the releases. Titus is a true artist who actually himself sing on one of the cues. I am very happy to work with Kite who I truly can recommend for their dreamy, dark and addictive sound and vocals.

Simon Kölle made the music to this swedish (with subtext in english) fantasy short inspired by the roleplay game Drakar och Demoner – Trudvang. This film is the start of something bigger and it can be seen on Youtube for a time. Enjoy!
