Each Construction Kit is complete with its own soundscape, together with a range of foley and ambient recordings from Norway’s forests and waters, combined with authentic Norwegian readings of ancient Norse poems, curses and prayers.
With deep chants, hand drums, droning cellos and pads, this library will take your music on a epic journey into the drama, the excitement & mythology of one of history’s most awe-inspiring eras.
Whether you’re writing music for a game, trailer, or simply need some dark ambiance in your next track, this library is sure to satisfy.
Due to the acoustic nature of the product, please note that MIDI files aren’t available for all phrases or Kits, as instrumental elements were recorded live.

The Creative Process:
“With this pack I wanted to explore a more raw direction for the series, drawing inspiration from the rich culture of ancient Norse history, touching on the occult, battle-hardened and contemplative aspects of their way of life.
Musically I tried to capture their fervour and vivid emotions – a different one in each piece, using the versatility of the cello’s sonic character to lead the way. While striving for historic accuracy and authenticity was a huge focus throughout, I also wanted to create a sound that was contemporary and so went for a hybrid style merging of designed synths, subs and pads to enhance the acoustic instrumentation.
Continuing my filmic scene approach to construction, contextualizing every piece in a physical space and atmosphere; I wanted to push it further – and given the largely acoustic nature of this pack, decided a great way would be to create custom IR’s from various unique and characteristic spaces and then process all of the performed musical and vocal elements accordingly.” – Lhasa Mencur.
