Flemming Nordkrog

Flemming Nordkrog is a Danish composer based in Paris. As a teenager, he became fascinated with cinema and in his early twenties began scoring films for the graduation students at the National Film School in Denmark. In 2002, he scored Nikolaj Arcel’s graduation film “Woyzeck’s Last Symphony,” which brought him to Paris. Shortly thereafter, he scored the follow-up drama-thriller “King’s Game,” directed by Arcel, and his scoring career was off.

To date, Flemming has been credited with scoring over 100 feature films, TV series, and documentaries from productions across Europe, Scandinavia, the USA, and Brazil. His sound can be described as organic and cinematic, while at all times retaining a sense of rich melodic and sonic clarity needed to land the emotional language of a story. From the voicing of a close-miked woodwind ensemble, to an upfront distorted cello, or the breadth of a larger string ensemble, Flemming remains firmly attached to the human element and significant role sound and music play in films.

Flemming’s eclectic approach and ability to orchestrate a score with a broad palette of instruments can be seen in recent productions, such as the 2023 Berlinale Selection “Seven Winters In Tehran” by Steffi Niederzoll and 2020 Berlinale Selection “Shine Your Eyes” by Brazilian Matias Mariani, for which Flemming received the 2021 HARPA Award and the 2021 Carl Prisen for Best Original Score. Other notable recent score highlights include Mathias Gokalp’s drama feature “L`établi,” Max Kestner’s feature doc “Little Galaxies” (for which Flemming again won the 2022 Carl Prisen and picked up a Camille Award nomination), and TV series such as HBO’s “Kamikaze” by Kaspar Munk, “Moloch” by Arnaud Malherbe for France’s ARTE, and hit success “Follow The Money” produced by DR Fiktion.

Flemming has a steady foot in French cinema, having composed all of the scores to Philippe Lioret’s projects since 2010, including “16 ans” and “Toutes nos envies,” for which Flemming received both the “Harry Warren Award,” awarded by the Italian Academy “Sonora,” and a “Special Prize of the Senate of the Italian Republic.” In France, he has also worked with Erik Zonka on “Le Soldat Blanc” and Matthieu Vadepied on “La Vie en Grand,” as well as Manele Labidi on her multiple award-winning “Un Divan à Tunis.”
