Clarence Öfwerman writes music for Christmas TV series

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.

  Now it’s two weeks to the premiere and Clarence has all the music ready, at least for the first 16-17 episodes. “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,” he says.

  Making music for TV has been a new world for Clarence. “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.”

  Editor’s note: According to the article, Clarence’s favorite Roxette songs are “It Must Have Been You” and “You’ve Got The Look”. We hope it’s the reporter who has made the mistake.
