P, C & C back in the AGM office (II): Clarence Öfwerman's Christmas

Age: 45 years old
Family: Wife and two children.
Last movie he has watched: ”Sköna Sussie” , it was Ok.
Last book he has readed: Sture Dahlströms ”Den superb blondinen”.
Musical influences: When I was younger I liked the synphonic rock, for example Genesis, Yes and Gentle Giant.
Roxettes best songs: ”It must have been love” and ”The look”.

According to Nacka Värmdöposten article and The Daily Roxette, the long-time producer Clarence Öfwerman, who has worked with Roxette since the very first single , has written the music for this year’s Swedish Christmas calendar TV series. TV’s Christmas calendar is an old annual tradition for children and has a different theme or story each year. This year the series’ name is “Håkan Bråkan” and it will be broadcast every day from December 1 until Christmas Eve on SVT.

Making music for TV has been a new world for Clarence. Now it’s two weeks to the premiere and Clarence has all the music ready, at least for the first 16-17 episodes.

Julkalendern” is a program which runs daily for 24 days, from first of December, and it’s about about 15 minutes long. I enjoy making music and film and TV.

In the last episode there will come an aunt from space in a sleigh. I don’t know what music there should be, but I still have a couple of weeks to make up my mind. I’ve just started to realize how many people and how much technology is involved. It was also unbelievably cool to be able to go to Berwaldhallen and play with 40 strings from the Radio Symphony Orchestra.
