"the dark, moody music enhances the overall atmosphere"
"Jørn Lavoll and Linn Kathrin Taklo have created new music for the play and it is one of the show's absolute strengths. Perhaps I am sentimentally inclined, but few give as many goosebumps as little children in earth-coloured poor folk costumes who sing about people, freedom and justice over a Les Misérables-esque tune."

More about us
For the last decade, Jørn Lavoll (Bear) and Linn Kathrin Taklo (Cat) have composed and produced music for a long list of computer games, theatre productions and shows. Both Bear&Cat are theatre people by education, but have always had music and composing as their main focus.
Their music is always met by high regards and acclaims, and is recognizable for its infectious melodies, inventive arrangements, dramatic flair, and high production qualities.
Anette Ståløy - VP of Business & Marketing - Dirtybit
We have collaborated with Jørn in connection with the development of the mobile game Fun Run 3: Arena, where he has composed sound effects and various music tracks. Jørn has experience from working with several Norwegian game developers and games, and quickly understands what we want, both when it comes to larger and smaller assignments. All work is delivered on time in an orderly and professional manner.
Linda Steinhoff - filmregissør
Jørn Lavoll was my first choice as a music composer for my Documentary Film “Voldtatt”, and he didn´t fail to deliver to my highest expectations within deadlines. As a person he is calm, positive, patient and with lots of empathy. He gave me the time I needed, listened carefully and helped as well as encouraged me to find my words to explain how I wanted the music score. He understood perfectly the atmosphere and mood sounds I was looking for to underline the story in the film, and also created several amazing unique strong music scores which left the audience and including myself with goosebumps and earworms.
I can truly recommend Jørn Lavoll as a music producer, and he will still be my first choice for future projects.
Tore Christian Sævold - teaterregissør
When I directed the play Den lille prinsen at Nye Fyllingsdalen theatre, I had the pleasure of having Jørn Lavoll with me as composer. The musical landscape he created became a large part of the piece as a whole, and with his background from the theater industry and with his enormous knowledge of instrumentalisation, he delivered both music and sound effects beyond all expectations. He is efficient, shows great understanding and makes good suggestions. This was invaluable in the artistic process. In addition, he is a very pleasant and likeable person.
