The Seppä brothers’ score is a brilliant example of how to make music for a children’s film with no condescending or going over the top. It is supremely balanced – very energized yet confidently relaxed in tone. It’s a score of true variety, with a sense of humour and dynamics worthy of a thriller.
Miska and Juri Seppä, also known as The SEPPÄ BROTHERS are award-winning composers of music for Film, TV, Commercials and Games. They have been composing and playing music together since their childhood. Combining their innovative composing with the production and programming skills of Juri and arrangement and orchestration knowledge of Miska, they have already produced many successful works that showcase their unique style.
