I am Halvard Bjørkås - a Norwegian composer and music producer who love to make music for video games and other visual media and arts.
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. I also did sound design for "Jesper på hjul" by EON Reality Norway.
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 will be happy to help you with things like:
