Danish composer Kristian Eidnes Andersen visits Aalto School of Arts, Design and Architecture

Andersen has worked as a sound designer and composer on some of the most significant European films of the last two decades.

Kristian Eidnes Andersen is a Danish film sound designer and composer. He heads the department of sound design at the National Film School of Denmark. He has worked as a sound designer and composer on some of the most significant European films of the last two decades. During the event Andersen will talk about his work in relation to major collaborations with Lars von Trier (Antichrist, Melancholia, Nymphomaniac), Nicholas Winding Refn (Only God Forgives), Thomas Vinterberg (The Hunt) and Per-Olav Sørensen (The Heavy Water War). He'll discuss the ways he works with directors at an early stage of production – and how von Trier operates differently.

Kristian Eidnes Andersen will look into his methods of creating a soundtrack or musical theme and the landscape in between the two. He considers a film’s whole soundscape like a score. “Music, dialogue, foley and fx are all instruments and can be orchestrated with some of the same tools I use when composing a musical piece – dissonance, dynamics, expression, harmony, pauses, tone, colour, etc.”For his sound in Antichrist, Eidnes Andersen received a Bodil Special Award. As a score composer, Eidnes Andersen has credit for more than 60 titles including von Triers Antichrist, Thomas Vinterberg's Submarino, and Per Fly's The Woman That Dreamed About a Man.

The event isn't geared towards only sound people but all filmmakers.
