Fenris (Uno Helmersson)

Original score from the 2022 crime drama television series directed by Simen Alsvik, starring Jonas Strand Gravli, Ida Elise Broch and Jan Gunnar Røise, produced by Nordisk Film Production and released by Viaplay and Canal Plus.

THE STORY: When a boy from a small town in Norway disappears, rumors arise that wolves are responsible, but a biologist discovers the bloody jacket in his father’s house and he soon disappears too, sparking a wave of investigations.

THE SCORE: “Crafting a film’s unique sound is the ultimate goal of any project. As a composer, I immerse myself in the world of the film, diving deep into scripts, seeking inspiration, and starting lengthy conversations with the artistic director to build a shared language of aesthetics and storytelling. For Fenris, I worked closely with Simen Alsvik, sharing musical preferences and discussing series details. Inspired by Americana and Nordic folk music, the soundtrack features banjo, guitar, Hardanger fiddle, hurdy-gurdy, cello, violin, and electronic elements. This music aims to capture the series’ raw, intimate, and gritty spirit, reflecting its characters, conflicts, and surrounding nature. I fondly refer to this blend as ‘Scandinaviana’. This series represents a new evolution in the Nordic noir genre, blending fragments of various folk music traditions from the Western hemisphere with the distinctive style of Nordic Noir.”
