ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The music for The Northlander was a journey of emotion and context of the future where the past has returned. At all times ensuring the visual style was right for the period when the story takes place is related to the style of music reflecting a world where civilization has started over. Anything physical that the hand was able to play emotionally defined the vast world of The Northlander as place where the characters are on a journey to discover who they are.

In searching for that sound that belonged to the world, it was important to work with a composer who lives in the lands this movie was made. They needed to understand the vastly empty (although beautifully scenic) world that is captivating and at the same time hostile. Finding this person with the hands and voice for reflecting this world led me to discover none other than Dr. Michalis Andronikou.

Andronikou was the artistic director of Harmony School of Music at the time, and his campus was fatefully five minutes from where I have always lived. A Greek, Andronikou has been performed all over the world by international symphonies conducting his orchestra ballads that have made him extraordinarily renowned in the Mediterranean lands of his origin. To discover an artist whose instinct is to compose with mythic qualities in the fibre of his being is what made Andronikou the only choice to compose the score of The Northlander.

Andronikou and myself conspired in studio at every session to direct the emotion of the viewer by specifically elaborating what scenario or emotions were at play at any given moment. This provided a specific frame to be precise with putting extraordinary musical expression into cinematic context. Together, we explored without hesitation from the smallest hits of a wooden block, to the greatest layering of multiple improvisations. An objective at all times to make the journey of Cygnus the hero an adventure felt in the deepest way by the viewer. We are proud to present this musical adventure for you enjoy, and imagine your own journeys to the mystical world of the Northlands.
