ABOUT STEPHANIE ECONOMOU
Stephanie Economou is a composer and violinist based in Los Angeles, CA. Her early successes have emerged from her exploration and study of widely varying musical styles, including classical, experimental, folk and rock. Stephanie’s experience in film scoring extends from drama to action to comedy, which has demanded the synthesis of an electronic and acoustic musical palette. It is her uniquely hybridized compositional voice which has proven a valuable asset across a wide spectrum of visual media.
Stephanie is the composer of the Netflix TV series Jupiter’s Legacy, based on the comic series by Mark Millar. She has written the music for the Lionsgate/Starz series Step Up: High Water, as well as the second season of Manhunt: Deadly Games, and two episodes of the Disney+ documentary series Marvel 616, directed by Gillian Jacobs and Alison Brie. Most recently, she scored Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s second expansion “The Siege of Paris,” the Netflix series, The Chair, created by Amanda Peet and starring Sandra Oh, and the upcoming LucasFilm/Disney+ documentary feature, More Than Robots, where she continued her collaboration with director Gillian Jacobs. Her latest score for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Dawn of Ragnarök is available now.
Stephanie is a long-time collaborator of Golden Globe-nominated composer, Harry Gregson-Williams, composing additional music on scores such as Disney’s live-action Mulan, directed by Niki Caro, Jon Turtletaub’s The Meg, Antoine Fuqua’s The Equalizer 2, Disneynature’s Penguins, and Ridley Scott’s Oscar-nominated film The Martian. Her music can also be heard in Niki Caro’s The Zookeeper’s Wife, Ben Affleck’s Live By Night, and Simon Baker’s Breath. She has also aided in crafting the scores for Hulu’s mini-series Catch-22 directed by George Clooney and Grant Heslov, as well as the ABC/Warner Bros. TV series Whiskey Cavalier.
Originally from Long Island, New York, Stephanie received her Bachelor’s degree in Composition from the New England Conservatory of Music and Master’s in Composition for Visual Media from University of California Los Angeles. In 2015, she was chosen as one of six fellows for the Sundance Institute Composers Lab at Skywalker Ranch. It was through this experience with the Sundance Institute that she felt her diversity as a woman in the film industry to be deeply fostered and celebrated. As a resident board member for The Alliance for Women Film Composers, Stephanie considers the empowerment of women in film an exceedingly necessary platform, and strives to make her voice, as well as other female voices in the industry, heard.
ABOUT EINAR SELVIK
Einar Selvik is a Norwegian composer, and the main musician and founder of the Norwegian musical constellation Wardruna, a project renowned for their innovative and genre-creating renditions of older Nordic traditions. By using the oldest Nordic instruments, poetry and poetic metres in a contemporary soundscape, Einar has managed to merge the scholarly with the pop-cultural, reaching audiences world-wide and stretching the limitations of musical genres. Einar has lectured about his work with historical music in Universities such as Oxford, Denver, Reykjavik, and Bergen; and his work is used to exemplify how music might have been executed in earlier times in Scandinavia by Top international scholars on Old Norse studies.

The massive musical contributions to the show have exposed their music to a broad audience worldwide.

Wardruna has previously charted in both Germany and the UK and topped the North American Billboard World-music chart for several consecutive weeks.
Einar was recently awarded the EGIL STORBEKKEN´S MUSIC PRIZE 2020. The prize is a national honorary award that was created in memory of the Norwegian musician, composer and cultural bearer Egil Storbekken. It can be given to people who have made an extraordinary effort in various work with Norwegian folk music, and especially the older folk instruments.
