Co-creators Aaron Ehasz and Justin Richmond had this to say about Frederik's work. "Freddie has an incredible ability to weave emotion, theme, and storytelling into his work that elevates The Dragon Prince to a new level."
"The Dragon Prince provides a wonderful canvas for me to explore a very colorful musical pallet. We wanted to give this world its own identity, so we decided to blend various ethnic and unorthodox instruments with a conventional orchestral sound. The use of a variety of live instruments was key to this, so we spent a great deal of time recording soloists all across the series, and for some parts we recorded a 40 Piece string orchestra for important scenes that needed it. It's been an absolute privilege to get to work on a series such as The Dragon Prince, a show so full of heart, imagination and excitement". – Frederik Wiedmann
