About Halvard Bjørkås

Composer | Bjorkas | Norway

ABOUT BJORKAS

I am Halvard Bjørkås – a Norwegian composer and music producer. Ever since the Commodore 64 entered my world as a four year old kid – I´ve been totally lost in love for combining music and visuals. The sound of that built in 8-bit syntheziser is still the sound of magic to my ears.

I have produced multiple mini video games for my project “Musikkdetektiven” (The Music Detective). I got funding from Øst-Norsk Filmsenter for “Musikkdetektiven og fuglemysteriet” – an interactive book with mini games.

Through these projects I have gained knowledge about game development and game logic. This means that I can be an integrated part of your production team – not just an external composer. I see the process of composing for games as a dialogue between the developers and the composer. My main goal as a game composer is to make your visions come alive. I put all my honor in being a professional partner, never missing a deadline. Please contact me for references. My music has been used by NRK, Teater Innlandet among others. I have done sound design for “Jesper på hjul” by EON Reality Norway.

I will be happy to help you with things like:
Spotting the game – planning where to put music, and what type of music to use: Linear/interactive, music styles/genres/instruments etc.
Composing and producing music and sound effects for your game
Recording and preparing voice over – I have a wide network of experienced voice over actors
Prepare the music in an audio middleware such as Fmod
