Description
A week ago I wrote the score for my friends' graduation project from the Icelandic Film School - a film entitled „Kæri Kaleb“ („Dear Kaleb“). This was probably my most rushed work ever, since I got the film on monday night and had to finish before thursday. It was an intense couple of days, but I made it - just in time.

This short film - telling the story of Kaleb, a 13 year old boy trying to realize where he stands in teenage social life - was then screened twice at a local movie theater as part of the Film School's graduation screenings, and it even ended up winning the school's award for best picture.

When the film becomes available on the internet - I'll link you guys up!

Very cool, Einar...
I love the stereo panned guitarish sounds... I just know they aren't really guitars, are they?

The string line, too, is really strong...

And as always these days, you have a strong, organic, nicely reverbed mix...

Einar, this is really beautifully done! I wish I could do this sort of thing, takes too much patience for me...but this is one of my favorites of this genre. Really moving...great mix and production as well.

wow einar...this is massive. simple...but hauntingly powerful. those strings sound amazing. the melody progresses just ahead of my anticipation, so it's always new and interesting (unlike so much of in this genre). cool.

Facility, and Quality
Another very fine track from you! I am always impressed by your music, but also by how quickly you seem able to write and produce it; these are essential in film composing, and I hope you get many more opportunities like this. Happy new year!

Intresting wouldn't mind watching the movie when you have a link. If the movie has as much quality as this song should be great. Lovely bit of music.

dude...
This is the first time I hear this kind of guitar with glockenspiel?! And you not only make it work, but back up a bold decision with a truly well structured, almost conservative (the good kind) soundtrack which is subtle, sophisticated and dare I say could be the most 'mature' track I've heard from you.

Once again sincerely impressed in more than one way. So happy to hear you top your previous achievements with ease...thankfully there's no end to (err) awesome...ness.
