Nordic TV drama series ’Norskov’ just recently sold to UK, Germany and France. We did music supervision for all 10 episodes which entailed partly creating, curating and clearing all source music. This Is Care Of’s Rasmus Bille Bahncke also co-wrote and co -produced the main title song with multi talented artist ‘Ohland’ Nanna Oland Fabricius and international score composer super star Kristian Eidnes setting the tone for the gripping Norskov universe. Watch the teaser here.

The new Hessismore album is out now, released by This Is Care Of in collaboration with Concierge Records.

This is the first album to feature the full transatlantic ensemble – recorded mostly live to tape at Midnight Sun Studio in Greenpoint. The repertoire was assembled during Hessismore’s residency at the Clocktower Gallery, and somehow this does not sound like any other record we know of.
We hope you will enjoy the music – and the terrific artwork created by NR2154

The largest Danish newspaper on Facebook ‘Dagbladet Information’ runs story on creative collective ‘This Is Care Of’. The article is based on an interview with Martin Burcharth at Clocktower Gallery NYC, May 2013. (Text in Danish) : >>http://www.information.dk/462458
The Sun Also Rises features two sets of songs: Five obscure tracks of African origin, recorded between the early ’80s and this past year, alongside five reinterpretations by artists drawn from the Scandinavian dance-music world. The album was initiated by Quartz+Co to create a musical reflection of its activities in Africa, where the company, which is based in Norway, Sweden, and Denmark, has worked extensively to aid local entrepreneurship. To create the album, Quartz+Co called upon the services of This Is Care Of, a multimedia arts collective centered around the musicians Rasmus Bille Bahncke and Mikkel Hess and the designer Jacob Wildschioedtz—all Danish natives living in New York City. Unearthing the songs proved no small task. As Hess notes, “It was especially important to find songs that were, basically, the most bad-ass things we had heard in a long time.” – J. Ruttenberg Dec 3rd 2012, New York >> www.thesunalsorises.info
