Good to have you here.

Hello! I make music for films, TV series and commercials from my studio in Reykjavík, Iceland. I'm happy you found me here. This is where I share some of my work, along with the occasional blog article about the hows and whys behind it.

Maybe you came all this way just to contact me. And we all know what we think about websites that do not have contact info on the landing page. 
So here you go.


Use this e-mail for fun, uplifting and personal exchanges, if you have taken the time to listen to my music. I don't bite, but I don't always have time to answer promptly. It's not you. It's me.


If you want to use my music for a commercial project, film, TV series, or anything else that requires clearing, please contact Anthemico Records. For everything else, please just ask. 


If you want to hire me for scoring film projects and commercials, or anything else you can think of, please contact Medialux Music Productions using this email:
