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:

  • 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 or Wwise


From my CV:

  • Master in Musicology, University of Oslo
  • Interactive Scoring for Games, Level 400 course at Berklee College of Music
  • Guest teacher in Audio production for Game students, University College of Hamar
  • Freelance writer for Musikkpraksis and Sound on Sound magazine,

On this album I have made som darker sounding pieces that I think works for mellow and melancholy in e.g. documentaries
