Åström was recently featured in Neufutur Magazine. Read the interview by James McQuiston here.
Åström is currently collaborating with Dominican director Juan Castillo to compose music for the upcoming feature film “Mango Bajito”. The director describes the film as “a homespun caribbean tale of greed, betrayal and justice by coincidence”. The film stars Danny Trejo (Heat, Machete, Sons of Anarchy). Take a look behind the scenes here.
Åström is finishing up the score for “The Magic Ferret”, directed by Alison Parker and starring Jacob Tremblay (The Smurfs 2), Fred Ewanuick (Corner Gas, Dark Angel) and Beverly Elliott (ABC’s Once Upon a Time). More info about the film can be found here on the official website.
Åström has completed the score for the independent feature film Cowboys and Indians. The film stars Kyle Agnew (“John Carter”), Catherine Hicks (“Seventh Heaven”), Jeffrey Von Meyer (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”), Maria Johnson and Lisa D’Amato (“America’s Next Top Model”). The film is directed by award-winning director Ian McCrudden (“Islander”, “Anita O’Day – The Life of a Jazz Singer”). An article in The Durango Herald can be found here.
Åström has finished the score for the feature film “Breakaway” for Three Ring Entertainment. The film is directed by Bryan Binder and stars Peter Carey (Real Steel, Machine Gun Preacher) and Marisa Ruby (Detroit 1-8-7).
Last month Åström finished the score for the pilot of the upcoming TV drama “Captain Blackout”, starring Dann Florek (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) and Diane Neal (Suits, NCIS).
A Traveler is the pseudonym of singer/songwriter Henrik Åström. Following the memories of his father, Åström traveled to Greece and wrote the songs that later would become the album “A Traveler”. He describes the tunes as worlds of their own where the listener can escape and hopefully find a little shelter.
The video was filmed in Tolo, Greece, by Rikard Westman. Music and lyrics by Henrik Åström.
Butoh dancer Frauke was commissioned by the Municipality of Tjörn to create a dance work for the Pilane sculpture exhibition in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Butoh dance is a Japanese art form with relatively few practitioners in Sweden. It has been a controversial expression that was born in 60th century Japan and is a mixture between dance, theater and improvisation. Dance works are frequently written exclusively for the environment where they will be performed.
Frauke is a Butoh dancer and choreographer from Gothenburg. The sculpture she chose for her performance at Pilane is the popular Damski Czepek by Ursula von Rydingsvard Vard.
The work resembles like an igloo made of ice but is made of plastic and has previously stood in Madison Square Park in New York where it became a popular place to get married in.
The music was composed by Henrik Åström and performed live on 28-29 August, 2010.
