EMIL FRIIS /// COMPOSER

Emil is a composer and songwriter based in Copenhagen Denmark.

A largely self taught musician and producer, through his lack of formal training Emil has created a musical language filled with sensibility, tension, brightness and somber beauty, resulting in a mixture of genre bending sounds.  Emil uses his unique and intuitive approach to composing, coupled with an ever changing array of synthesizers and effects, orchestral and live instruments, guitars, piano, electronics, percussion, to help push the boundaries of current scoring trends.

He has scored many of DR/Danish Broadcasting Corporation’s most prestigious documentary projects and has scored or had music placed in numerous productions from the likes of CBS, CANAL+, TIME, DANISH TV2, DANISH TV3, DR1 ect. In addition he has worked with SUNDANCE IGNITE fellow KEVIN BROOKS as well as MAYA DARDEL producer MORGAN JON FOX.

Emil has recently scored DR1’s new True Crime mini series HVID MANDS DAGBOG/WHITE MAN’S DIARY.
