Fingers crossed for a score album... it's been FAR TOO LONG since the last Soderqvist CD...

I've edited the headline to include the new composer.

Any news about the replacement?

None that I have heard, no.

This looks great - I'll definitely want to watch that on the big screen! It's scheduled for March 2013 here in Germany - ouch.
Of course, I'm curious about the music and what approach they will take. I guess there won't be too much of my beloved seafaring music, but it looks like the perfect opportunity for a great score in any case.

I saw the film today -- it's really good and VERY lavish. It holds nothing back compared to Hollywood epics of its kind. And probably also the best shark/fish CGI I've ever seen.

The score is stupendously beautiful. Can't wait to interview Söderqvist in a couple of days.

Lucky devil. Give him a pat on the back from me for Let The Right One In. I love that score - probably my favourite from the last ten years.

Can't wait to see and hear this one.

I'll ask him. It's not common with soundtrack albums in Norway, but hopefully someone can do it --- like Mikael Carlsson's Moviescore Media, which did the previous Norwegian big-budget film, MAX MANUS.

Glad to hear it. Fingers crossed for a UK release.

It looks really good, I'd like to see it.

Have you seen the 1950 documentary Thor? As a child this was shown on ( BBC? ) seemingly regularly, along with Tenzing/Hillary, Neil Armstrong, David Attenborough and Chris Bonnington, Thor Heyerdahl was one of my childhood heroes. It was these guys amongst a few others who instilled a sense of adventure and a want to travel that burns in me to this very day.

Embarassingly, I haven't seen the old documentary, even though it's the only Norwegian film to get an Oscar.

But I've read Heyerdahl's KON-TIKI book. Not exactly well-written, but ripe with incredible situations. They captured that drama in the film, even though they obviously also had to leave out certain exciting things in the adaptation.

He was also a childhood hero of mine.

I'm surprised you've never seen it. I had to watch it everytime it was on TV. ( 'had to' as in wanted to wink )

I forgot to mention that one of my other heroes was Jacques Cousteau.

Had an excellent 30-minute interview with him today. Johan is such a cool guy, totally humble and 'everyday Joe' in demeanor, even though he's the biggest composer in the whole of Scandinavia right now. I think it will go out as a sound interview (even though there's some background noise from the breakfast hall in the hotel), which is unfortunate for most of you. Then again, you wouldn't have understood Norwegian text either.

The cool thing is that he said he was working on a soundtrack album for KON-TIKI, which is a gobsmackingly beautiful score -- especially the theme performed on a conch (you know, the shell you can find on the beach). It's by far my favourite from him, next to DE USYNLIGE.

I can promise you that when the KON-TIKI album hits the shelves, there will be few who DON'T like it!

Looking forward to the interview. I take it for granted that you talk a bit about what happened to Bjerknes too.

We do touch on the subject, yes.

Excellent news! Thanks for the heads-up.
He was perfect choice for this job...

btw, recently watched KING OF DEVIL'S ISLAND (actually twice this week)... very good score too... such a shame he is so underrepresented on CDs.

He revealed to me that he's also planning a release of that (excellent) score.

But man, the conch shell theme in KON-TIKI, and the way he weaves that into extremely emotional melodies with large interval leaps....man, I get goosebumps just thinking about it.
