This is his first feature film score since 2001.

Let's hope for a soundtrack release!

Looking forward to this. I'm at the Norwegian film festival now, and there's a press screening of the film tomorrow.

This winter, I a had a long post-party walk with Norwegian composer Kjetil Bjerkestrand, and he said he had also worked on this. Of course, they've worked together before, so it's no surprise. Let's hope it was another good collaboration.

And Gilbert Gabriel is scoring "Chambers Gate", as well as possibly "Veteran's Day".

Has anyone read the book? How is it?

Kjetil is a great guy. He even left a copy of his Piano Poems for me in the hotel lobby when he visited Kristiansand last year. :-D

So were they co-composers here?

A couple of mistakes there. Rønning and Sandberg didn't direct the film in the end, and the February 2014 release date clearly got pushed back.

So what has that got to do with this thread?

I'm not sure about the details. I think so. Or Kjetil worked more in the 'shadows'.

Maybe because he was in an "80's" band, too (The Dream Academy)?

Isobel Griffiths is credited as orchestral contractor, so perhaps the score is more symphonic than we are used to from Furuholmen?

About the book, I read it in my youth, at least parts of it. I didn't really connect to it though, seemed quite far removed from my own life...

I was too hung over to catch the early press screening. But it received mixed reviews from my colleagues. Hmmm...

Any word of a CD release?

Soundtrack is now available digitally. I haven't had a chance yet myself to give it a listen...

Just listened to the samples. I mean A-Ha was qute a good pop band but that score really sounds cheap. Musically not very clever or original and the drums sound like recorded with some garage band. I don`t have anything against pop flavored film scores. But they can be done better. IMHO.

Looking forward to the score. I still think his greatest score is the smooth, guitar-driven music for the 1994 film TI KNIVER I HJERTET (CROSS MY HEART AND HOPE TO DIE), which he also did in collaboration with Kjetil Bjerkestrand:



(music starts about 40 seconds in).

Well, I hope you didn't expect to hear Take On Me in a film about Beatles.

The samples sounded like an acoustic rock and roll jam session. Quite melodic and vibrant, but maybe not extremely interesting.

Yes, that's a good one, although they try hard to sound like Mark Knopfler or David A. Stewart there.

I think the opening credits to Hotel Oslo is the freshest thing they have done:
