Welcome to my humble home on the interwebs! I’m Eirik Myhr, a composer and musician based in the beautiful town of Asker, just outside of Oslo, Norway. Most of the time, I create music for theatre, films and television. In between battles, I work on my solo albums, which may be placed somewhere in the outskirts of "alternative pop".
My method of making music is largely based on instinct. I grab the first idea that feels right, and try not to doubt it, not to look back. Later in the creative process I may stumble and fall, or get stuck in a corner, but very often these early melodic ideas end up with a big role in the final project. 40 years of obsessing over all thinkable kinds of music, be it Edvard Grieg, Phil Collins or Rage Against the Machine... It all goes into the melting pot that is my brain, and something else comes out in the other end. I always start from scratch with a new palette of sounds, because every new film, album, stageplay or drama series creates a new world. I aim for my music to help paint that world, and make it even more cohesive and believable.
This site mainly contains tons of information about my various projects. There are hours and hours of music clips around too, plus video clips and photos*.
The default view when you enter the site is the SELECTED PROJECTS section. This presents a curated view of some of my recent and more well known – or more personal – projects. If you simply want more, you can go to ALL PROJECTS to get a more extensive view of every film, every TV series, every stage production; yes, pretty much every project I have worked on for the last 15 years. And yes, I am 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! –Eirik
