School Concert – Merregnon: Land of Silence

A symphonic saga by Yoko Shimomura.

Merregnon: Land of Silence is the story of the orphan Miru, who embarks on an unforgettable adventure with her childhood friend Hikito and the trusty dog Mako. Their goal is to find out what is plaguing the Land of Silence, Merregnon.

Merregnon: Land of Silence is a ”Peter and the Wolf” for the Playstation generation. It is a performance created for families and children, an introduction to the wonder of symphonic sound.

Merregnon is a fantastical world of its own, painted with beautiful images, captivating melodies and symphonic sounds. The story is by German children’s author Frauke Angel and the music is composed by Yoko Shimomura, one of the most prominent video game music composers of our time. She composed the music for internationally best-selling games like Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy XV.

German producer Thomas Böcker is behind the idea. His past endeavours include the incredibly successful concerts of video game music such as Final Symphony and Symphonic Fantasies. He has said that Merregnon: Land of Silence is a symphonic fairy tale of courage, perseverance, solidarity and above all, freedom.

Merregnon is also available on Konserthuset Play: a specially produced concert film made in 2021.

The performance is accompanied by six short films in which the composer Yoko Shimomura herself presents the various characters, and the choice of instruments, in more detail. Perfect to watch in the classroom before the concert. You can find the trailers via the link here next to the right/below.
