We have recently received word from the team behind the film that the soundtrack for Comrade will be composed by Nils Petter Molvær, who already worked with director Petter Næss in the past.
In a recent article, he revealed this to Dagbladet.no:
“I am in the process of doing the music for “Comrade”, the film which Petter Næss is making for the Norwegian department of Lars von Trier’s Zentropa. To make music for a film is a completely different way of thinking about music than what I normally do, I don’t use any trumpet, but a little guitar and a little piano, and the contrast between the two ways of working is something I like very much.”

Thanks to Malene for the find!
Nils Petter Molvær is currently on tour throughout Europe with Stian Westerhus and Erland Dahlen playing from his new album Baboon Moon, and we had the opportunity to attend last night’s concert in Berlin, and we are very keen to find out more about the soundtrack…
