Music

I also produce and compose music, both solo and in different music constellations. Although music production and sound design are two different areas, I find that sound design has its own kind of musicality to it and I think having experience within music sometimes can be a good thing for a sound designer and vise versa.

In the slide below there are youtube clips of tracks I’ve produced and/or have been involved in. More in-depth information about the tracks can be found on each track’s youtube page.

The Row- boats

The Rowboats - Kraftwerk Tribute

Track Name: The Rowboats
Artist: Samuel Lidström
Original Track Name: The Robots
Original Artist: Kraftwerk
Originally Composed by: Ralf Hütter, Florian Schneider and Karl Bartos

This project started out in 2010 with me loving the the original track The Robots by Kraftwerk so much that I started trying to create/imitate all the track's sounds from scratch only using the software instrument Arturia Mini V. In other words, no samples were used.

Gift of Flight

Gift of Flight

Gift of Flight is my interpretation of the track Skyworld from the video game Super Smash Bros.. The track is available on the fan-arranged non-profit Super Smash Bros tribute album Harmony of Heroes (2014).

In a review of the album by Game Music Online, this track gets mentioned: "A particular highlight is Samuel Lidstöm and Annmari Thim’s unique “Gift of Flight (Skyworld)” which combines several orchestral elements together with some exotic sounds alongside a soaring and grand rock arrangement." (GameMusicOnline, 2014)

Here's a small demonstration of how I produced Dream Band. This video was created around the same time the first preview trailer for Harmony of Heroes was released in December 2013, so it only shows only the part of the track that can be heard in the trailer.

Samus' Voyage

Samus' Voyage

I was a big part in the creation of this medley. It appears on Harmony of a Hunter: 101% Run (2012), a tribute to the video game series Metroid’s twenty fifth anniversary.

It's a 13 minutes long medley that begins with the first track of the first metroid game and continues with one song from each game, in the order of which they were released.

Names of the people involved in this medley and information about how they contributed is embedded in the video clip.
