Ariel Phenomenon is an upcoming documentary feature film directed by Randal Nickerson and produced by String Theory Productions. Åström recently completed the original score for the film together with composer Nate Walcott.
The documentary centers on the 1994 UFO mass sighting at the Ariel School in rural Zimbabwe, Africa. It includes interviews with Pulitzer Prize winning Harvard psychiatrist Dr. John Mack, BBC reporter Tim Leach who was first on the scene, and many of the witnesses who share the lasting impact it has had on their lives.

Åström is currently working on the score for the upcoming TV series ‘The American Runestone’, a documentary series shedding light on the role played by Viking explorers in Europe’s discovery of North America. The show stars popular Swedish actor Peter Stormare (“The Blacklist,” “Swedish Dicks”). The series’ first two seasons have been commissioned by the Viaplay streaming service run by Scandinavia’s NENT Group.
Åström has composed the original music score for the Albanian/American co-production Internment. The period piece feature film is directed by Kast Hasa and produced by Cinekast Production. Internment follows an Albanian family that struggles to survive the communist regime during the 1980s. The soundtrack album is now available to buy on Amazon, iTunes, and other major online distributors.
