Product Description

Music Composed by Johan Söderqvist

Perseverance Records teams up with Johan Söderqvist to release his score for the historical epic Amundsen. A true hero of Norway, Roald Amundsen is best-remembered for his incredible achievement of reaching the South Pole in 1911. Directed by Espen Sandberg, Amundsen stars Pål Sverre Hagen as the arctic explorer who is caught in a race to reach both the North and the South Pole and also becomes an early pioneer of flying over the Arctic scene - with tragic results...

"The director Espen Sandberg had a vision for the music: to create a whole new aural world for the South Pole, a place at that time as unknown to people as Mars or Jupiter," explains Johan Söderqvist. "We wanted it to feel like we're arriving to a whole new world , a new universe. We recorded many different crazy things but in the end we really liked the sound of Indian native flutes being blown - or screamed into! - a new wonderful Russian electronic voice/breath processor called "the Pipe". That together with heavily distorted ambiences & drums became the signature sound of the film."

Johan Söderqvist is one of the busiest and most successful Scandinavian composers. He has collaborated on a regular basis with Danish director Susanne Bier for whom he scored Brothers (2004) the Oscar-nominated After the Wedding (2006), the Oscar-winning In a Better World (2010) and the romantic comedy Love Is All You Need (2012). His other credits include the Oscar-nominated Kon-Tiki (2014), the British/American horror The Limehouse Golem (2016) and the cult classic vampire film Let the Right One In (2008).
