Composing music for the film "Ingebjørg Olavsdatter"

Hello folks... sorry it's been a while since I posted anything on my blog. I'm currently composing music for the Norwegian film project, "Ingebjørg Olavsdatter". This is a part dramatized historical documentary film directed by Magnus Bjørneby.

It's a feature length film, and I only have about a month to compose all the music for it, and I'm combining this with (as always) putting a lot of work into my royalty-free music licensing business, www.shockwave-sound.com. So you could say that I'm busy as usual. :-)

The film is based on the true story of Ingebjørn Olavsdatter, who by more or less of a coincidence got caught up in a power struggle for the throne of Norway, around the year 1350 shortly after the Black Plague wiped out about a third of Norway's population. It's a full feature length film, combining dramatized scenes (i.e. actors and dialogue etc.) with historical insights and interviews. It's really quite interesting, and I'm enjoying the chance to compose and produce the music for it. The film is scheduled for release on DVD in the late fall of 2006.

Here is a short example of the film music I have done so far, in low-quality mp3 format. Click here to download mp3.

Now I'm even more excited for this film! Lovely music! I'm quite sure that it will fit in. I'm so curious to experience which tone who will be used to the different scenes.. Keep up the good work!

Hi - Excellent sample, it really has a good feel of quality to it and I am sure it will fit in well with the theme of the film. Well done!

Ambient 2--Wonderful.makes your imagination float to conjoure mystical scenes and quiet solitudes to unwind.

A zillion title names come into focus but I relate to "Mystic Shards". I really do enjoy all of your composing.Bj
