Lauri from The Rasmus composes movie score
The Rasmus’ Lauri Ylönen has fulfilled one of his life long dreams by writing the score to a new Finnish movie called Blackout. Blackout is a psychological thriller about a man who suffers from amnesia. He wakes from a long coma to find someone has fired a nail into his head with a nail gun. He then begins to trace the events leading up to the trauma. The movie stars popular Finnish actor Petteri Summanen.
“I always wanted to compose a movie score. I read the manuscript and the melodies started to play in my head. Basically I have classical training in music and the themes came alive easily.
I sat down by the piano, put my fingers on the keys and listened to where I should move my hands next”, summarizes Lauri.
The theme song of the movie, “Tide”, is performed by debut artist Belle Who.
“She is a very talented indie pop artist from Helsinki and the latest signing on Dynasty Recordings. I have worked on her album for most of this year as I’m the executive producer,” says Lauri. Belle Who’s debut album will be released early in 2009.
