hallvardur asgeirsson

HALLVARDUR ASGEIRSSON is an Icelandic musician, composer and poet who caught the attention of Paradigms Recordings whilst study for his BA in composition at the Icelandic Academy Of Arts in Reykjavik. It was here that he wrote, performed and recorded his "Lífsblómið" opus which was subsequently released on Paradigms in November 2006.

Challenging yet beautiful, powerful and evocative avant modern classical composition taking elements of the 20th Century Viennese musical school of Schonberg, Berg and Webern, the urban deconstructionalism of Einsturzende Neubauten and the desolate arctic glow of Sigur Ros, Biosphere or the Kranky Records roster. Droning doomed classical, shadowy atmospherics and carefully layered works complemented by choral Teutonics for female voice. A mighty proposition indeed. He subsequently attained his Masters degree in Composition in New York and is currently teaching.
