I love to work and both to compose, write, develope and produce. As I am working hard with finishing Svartsjön (Black Lake) I have also shifted up a gear as a Film Producer. In the middle of January I sent a team, lead by the director Titus Paar, to Colombia. Along with the team came the famous swedish musician Moneybrother (Anders Wendin). They stayed in Colombia for two weeks helped out building a school in the jungle, gave away soccer shoes to kids in Bogota and much more. It will end up being a documentary in the end. As they were there they, rather spontaneous, made a music video which was released on Expressen the other day.
I am also working with development of several other projects ranging from a TV-series to features and also another documentary.
I am now looking for interesting composing jobs that I can dive into after I have completed the TV-series in may.
Working hard on the score for the TV-series Svartsjön (Black Lake) season 2 it’s Always nice to recieve updates about games and earlier completed scores.
Conduct This! The app game that’s been played by more than 3 million people have earlier been transformed into an AR-version and now a Computer version that can be bought on STEAM. Check out a trailer here:
Here’s a couple of qoutes:
“The low-poly visuals are gorgeous, the music is incredibly well done, and the puzzles themselves are clever and challenging” – AppAdvice
“the music itself (composed by Simon Kölle) is rather charming and delightful”
- Christine Chan
“and the new music alone (composed by Simon Kölle) is rather charming and pleasant” – Gaby Baginsky
“Conduct THIS!, winner of the International Mobile Gaming Awards and played by more than 3 million people. Fantastic soundtrack by composer Simon Kölle.”
“As the main story in the movie is the occult, Simon Kolle goes on with both the choir and the cello to express that musically. I must admit the music is alluring and I want to know more, the composer manages to infuse his cues with the fascination of the occult.”
“Call me crazy but there were moments when I felt a gust of Hitchcock passing through this score, better said a gust of Bernard Herrmann like suspense. All in all “Ave mater” is an interesting listen on its own.”
“It’s little things like the way Simon Kolle uses the voices and choir throughout this score that make me want to pay attention to his future works. The way he side steps generic music and filler cues also make me really enjoy his composition. There are little exciting and unexpected nuggets of music in almost every cue. It might be my vivid imagination inspired by the music but the way “A slit throat” is constructed. sounds to me like the blood quietly flowing out of that throat.”
- Mihnea Manduteanu, Soundtrack Dreams
Ave Mater is due to be released in Japan and the date the film will air on Japanese national TV is the 4th of january 2018.
