Rebekka Karijord

Rebekka Karijord  is a composer and musician originally from Sandnessjøen, just south of the arctic circle in Northern Norway. Over the course of her career she has composed music for over 30 films, modern dance performances and theatrical pieces, as well as released six solo albums under her own name.

Project highlights in 2020 /2021 include the score to Hulu documentary “I Am Greta” about climate activist Greta Thunberg, Amazon Studios drama thriller feature “All The Old Knives”,  Universal Pictures film “RAN” a biopic of British explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes, HBO doc thriller “Pray, Obey, Kill” and the album “Complete Mountain Almanac”, a collaboration with Bryce and Aaron Dessner (The National) based upon the poems of Jessica Dessner with songs by Rebekka.

Karijord holds a degree from the prestigious Stockholm Royal Dramatic Institute and has an extensive education within fine arts. Over the course of her early career she developed her unique voice through experience as a musician, actor, playwright and composer, working alongside directors including Joachim Trier, Eskil Vogt and Margreth Olin.

Her breadth of experience and skills as a studio technician, songwriter and programmer have allowed her to work on a diverse range of commissioned projects.  From film scores to theatre productions for The Royal Dramatic Theatre in Stockholm and The National Opera House in Norway to sound design for The National Museum in Norway.  Karijord writes for all kinds of constellations, from orchestras and ensembles to more intimate electro acoustic scores.

With her in-depth experience Karijord has developed a sharply intuitive dramaturgical understanding of what a film needs emotionally, and many of the projects she has chosen to work on have a clear humanistic and political agenda.
