Arnar - New music for VÍB Investment Service

on .

Directors Samuel & Gunnar recently signed with Truenorth Productions for advertising work here in Iceland. 

One of their first projects there were the following 3 spots for VÍB Investment Service for agency Hvíta Húsið.

They commisioned Arnar to compose the music track to the ads. This is not their first collaboration, as Arnar produced and performed the score for .:this award winning spot for the directing duo.

And here is the result this time around, we like it a lot, but we are rather partial, so you have to judge for yourselves:





Ring and Iceland Airwaves team up...

on .

Iceland's biggest music festival, Iceland Airwaves is going on in every available venue in Reykjavík right now, and the whole city resonates to the music of over 300 bands.

We just finished making music to this ad for youth mobile brand Ring for their collaboration with the festival.

The spot was directed by Reynir Lyngdal for Pegasus Pictures and agency ENNEMM

Don Pedro produced the track, but due credit has to be given to Siggi Baldursson, of Sugarcubes fame, whose drums grace the intro...

Höllin premieres on RIFF, we did our bit...

on .

Höllin, a documentary about one of Reykjavík's most remarkable public building (our oldest indoor swimming pool) and it's visitors, premieres on the 23rd of September at the Reykjavík International Film Festival, RIFF.

The film, directed by Héðinn Halldórsson and Steindór Gunnar Steindórsson for Mont Productions will also be aired on Icelandic State Television (RÚV) in October, and hopefully in many other countries consequentially.

The film intimately portrays the spirit of this great house, it's staff, and the people who see it as a fixed point in their existence, and a center for their social life.

It's a great film, but you know us, we wouldn't be mentioning this if it wasn't for the fact that Bjarki wrote the music for it, and Don Pedro and Addi 800 took care of all audio post production from original sound design to the final mix. Our friends at Trickshot then took care of the video post production.

All this makes us extra proud of it, and we wish it all the best once it's out there, because we all left a little bit of us in it, and burned some midnight oil to get it ready in time. Go see it if you can. It's worth it.

And guys, that poster is so nice we don't have it in us to crop it, you'll just have to scroll a little harder:

We score a SciFi invasion for Skjarinn

on .

The guys over at Zeta Film were commissioned to film a big autumn presentation for Skjarinn Television.

Don Pedro scored it (well apart from that little known song at the beginning) and got to do the sound design as well, which was huge fun, as many of these drones and alien sounds were made from scratch. Director Baldvin Z had us at "Epic SciFi".

To residents outside The Economic Ruins Of Iceland™, all those people appearing in the video are famous local TV stars, not just some random people.

5 Toggi songs, while you wait...

on .

We are working hard on finishing Toggi's new album, and are happy to report that it's not going to be crap.

As those of you who frequent this site know, we have published some of the songs here, and 3 of them can still be downloaded for absolutely free. But lots of people (two) have asked us to put all the new songs in one place for easier access while you wait for the album.

So here they are. Enjoy, and please share with everybody you know that has ears.
