The soundtrack to Häxan voted for the Authors' Jury at Rimusicazioni Film Festival

The soundtrack to Häxan voted for the Authors' Jury at Rimusicazioni Film Festival

The soundtrack by Matti Bye composed to Häxan: Whichcraft Through the Ages from 1922 was voted for the Authors' Jury at 2016 Rimusicazioni Film Festival with the motivation:

“Matti Bye’s soundtrack for the film "Häxan" stood out for the way it enhanced the content of the film’s sequences to maximum effect, intimately complementing the theme, atmosphere and various elements in the scenes. The central musical theme, while remaining consistent, ranges between highly evocative free allusions and thematic uniformity in a bewitching flow of wide-ranging sequences, without ever losing expressive tension.”
