Suddenly We Looked Like Giants


Patrick Jonsson


Emmy-nominated composer Patrick Jonsson presents his first artist album ‘Suddenly We Looked Like Giants’.

Inspired by Patrick’s childhood home in Sweden, ‘Suddenly We Looked Like Giants’ is a cinematic journey that explores the parallels and interplay between human nature and the natural world.

The title track for instance refers to the long shadows created by the low winter light, but is really about the perceived invincibility of youth. ‘Yrsn’, meaning “whirling snow” in Swedish is about the storms we weather within. The album is framed by themes of growing up. While ‘Suddenly We Looked Like Giants’ is about youth, ‘Giants Fall’ is about that first moment of real loss. The album is bookended by ‘And Then the Sun Was Gone’, a song of acceptance, which alludes to the title track in its imagery of a disappearing sun.

Coming from a film composition background, Patrick has always been fascinated by the transportive power of music. His film scoring work includes writing music for Academy Award and BAFTA nominated feature documentary ‘Virunga’ and Academy Award winning Netflix Short Documentary ‘The White Helmets’ for which he was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award.

His latest film ‘On Her Shoulders’ directed by Alexandria Bombach premiered at Sundance 2018 to critical acclaim where it won the documentary award for Best Director. The film will be released theatrically later on 2019 by Oscilloscope. Most recently, Patrick composed additional music for the recordbreaking TNT television series The Alienist starring Daniel Bruhl, Luke Evans and Dakota Fanning.
