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.

 

North American trailer of The Huntress – Rune of the Dead

Once it was titled “Viking Saga: Rune of the Dead” but closing in on the release the film have a new title. The official title will be “The Huntress – Rune of the Dead”.

An North American trailer, with focus on the more scary parts of the film, has been edited with some (mostly in the begining) of my score. The Score is completed and it ended up being over 80 minutes of Music! I am both the Composer and one of the Producers of the film that will have a US in the fall.

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. 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 :
