Free Nature Sound: Relaxing Mountain Stream, with Ambient Music

I have just finished creating another one of my one hour nature soundscape with ambient music productions (the sixth in the series). Just to spread some good vibes, I would like to give this creation to all my listeners free. The free version is in "near CD quality" 128-kbps mp3 file. A higher quality version, true CD-quality 256 kbps, can be purchased for $8.99 and can be downloaded instantly after purchase.

This one is titled Relaxing Mountain Stream and it contains the sound of a small brook peacefully running down a mountainside, mixed with one full hour of ambient music composed and produced by me. The sound recording was done on location in Norway and the music was composed in my studio over a period of about 2 weeks. I hope you'll enjoy it!

You can find this release, along with the 5 others in my Nature Sound Series, here. (Free download from product page).

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.
