Eirik Myhr – composer & musician
…to my humble home on the interwebs! I’m Eirik Myhr, a composer and musician based in Oslo, Norway. Most of my time is devoted to composing music for films, stage, television and other media.
This page mainly contains tons of information about my various PROJECTS, sorted and filtered in neat little categories. There are hours and hours of music clips around too, plus video clips and photos*. If you don’t have that amount of time and just want to listen to a 5 minute SHOWREEL, you’re welcome to do that too. Some of my work that I’m fond of, I release on my little label called Pling Kong Recordings. And sometimes I write stuff on my BLOG.
When I make music, I am inspired by everything from Edvard Grieg to Steve Reich to Rage Against the Machine or Lana Del Rey. There are very few boundaries – as long as I can catch something that feels right for the project!
I’m writing this in first person because it is written by me – as everything on this site is, unless otherwise specified. I enjoy doing stuff like this, and have no plans of hiring a Super Web Factory Staff ** anytime soon. If I sometimes get a bit colourful in some of my writings, the views and opinions are my own.
Thanks for visiting!
* I have taken the liberty of borrowing some photos for showcasing my different projects, and have done my best to credit all the photographers. In some cases though, I have not been able to dig up all the names behind the photos. If you find some missing or erratic crediting and have the right information, do not hesitate to contact me and I will fix it ASAP.
** Only a half-truth, I do have my awesome friend Benedicte at bgraphic. This page would be full of bugs and look like crap if it weren’t for her!
