TV Series Gala at the 13th FMF

The Crown | Chernobyl Wataha American Horror Story Stranger Things

For the second time in FMF history, we invite you to an emotional music concert for the most popular series. We guarantee moments of horror from American Horror Story , tension – with Chernobyl or fun – with Stranger Things ! Among the composers who accepted our invitation were, among others Martin Phipps, Trevor Morris, Hauschka and Mac Quayle. See you on May 30 at 19.00 at the Tauron Arena Krakow.

It’s time to unveil the first points of the FMF 2020 program. First, the biggest concert, TV Series Gala at the Tauron Arena Krakow. When we decided to invite festival fans for the first time in 2015 to listen to music themes and songs from the series, we did not expect such a positive reception. The suite from the Vikings series recorded as many as 9.5 million views on our YouTube channel! We can safely assume that probably every participant in that concert to this day remembers goose bumps caused by the performance of Einar Selvik, who sang and played on ethnic instruments. Will we have similar experiences during the next edition?

Trevor Morris and Einar Selvik – this duo, known for their soundtrack to the Vikings , will provide a considerable dose of emotions on Saturday, May evening. Music from the latest season of the series will be the best link with the first gala on this subject. Just like the Wataha suite, adopted last time with great applause . Freshly after the broadcast of the first episodes of the third season, it can be said that Łukasz Targosz did not disappoint his fans. Ania Karwan also accepted the gala invitation, who will perform beautiful and extremely atmospheric vocal parts from the series.

TV Series Gala in 2020 can not do without the serial gem, which is The Crown . Until the third season, the music was composed by Martin Phipps . “I can’t wait for the audience in the great FMF arena to hear these performances live – in addition with the orchestra. Of course, there will also be Victoria or Black Mirror, ”assures the British composer. We’ll start with truly royal and majestic sounds, then move to dark electronic minimalism. Speaking of darkness, it is worth emphasizing that we will also hear music from American Horror Story and Mr. A robot by Mac Quayle , a creator who can perfectly build tension.

During the gala, you will also be delighted by the subtle piano Patrick Melrose and the experimental Gunpowder Plot , written using a prepared piano by Hauschka . Thanks to the use of synthesizers, the sounds of the 80s will be reminded of the duo Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein , responsible for music for one of Netflix’s most popular productions – Stranger Things . The gentlemen owe the series the notoriety that many artists from similar regions of electronics can only dream of. Dixon and Stein admit that interest in the soundtrack has exceeded their expectations – to the extent that after the premiere of the first season they had to refuse interviews because of … lack of time to finish their album.

Music for the production of HBO Chernobyl will introduce us to the world of rare sounds. To better reflect the aura of the nuclear power plant, Hildur Guðnadóttir went to a closed facility of this type in Lithuania. “I wanted to create the most realistic music possible. The story presented in the series is extremely strong. To this day there are a lot of people who lost their family members at that time. I had to treat this musical task very carefully, “recalls the composer.

On May 30, there will also be music specially prepared for the festival by the composer beloved by the FMF audience, and also the winner of the first Polish Sound Track of the Year award, Bartosz Chajdecki, for the production of TVP Ziuk. Young Piłsudski and War girls .
