Just before Christmas I won an award for my score to “The Huntress” at Southern States Indie FanFilmFest. The festival s held on the beautiful Gulf Coast in Biloxi, Mississippi, an historic coastal town. Thank you so much!
Won Outstanding Achivement at Global Music Awards
2021 starts of with another win! I am a happy winner of an Outstanding Achivement award for my score “The Huntress”.
Thank you so much Global Music Awards and of course the wonderful and highly skilled jury!
The Jury consisted of:
Charles Denier (Composer, Emmy Winner), Art Phillips (Composer, Producer, Emmy Winner), Darlene Koldenhoven (Soprano, Grammy Winner), Ricky Kej (Composer, Grammy Winner), Elisabeth Franch (Classical Flutist), John Daversa (Jazz Composer), Amanda Abizaid (Vocalist), Melissa B (Vocalist), Malek Jandali (Composer), Berta Moreno (Jazz Instrumentalist), Tri Nguyen (Zither Master), Dorothy Hindman (Composer).
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.
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 :
The teaser/Short film of Legend of Dark Rider is enjoyed worldwide and we can only hope the project ends up being a major feature film in the future. If someone can do it its Titus Paar that’s for sure.
