Dear lovely people who still like my page despite the lack of activity for so very long. I apologize for having disappeared for a while. I seem to have been very pre-occupied with off-line actives and neglecting the online world a little. I am back with some news for you. First of all my partner Mio and I have been building a studio for the past two years, which we gave the name Masterkey and officially opened on January 6th 2018. If you are curious about it, here is a website where you can check it out: http://www.masterkey.is It’s in beautiful Iceland where we live, and we feel truly blessed to be the guardians of such an incredible creative space. I am turning 30 this year, preparing my third solo record and we are expecting our third baby together. I have a good feeling about this year. On this note, I am sending you all love and blessings from windy and snowy Iceland. Photos by: Jonatan Gretarsson
One of the most amazing things Ive gotten to do in my life so far is being a part of a local choir here in Iceland, and singing this masterpiece by J.S. Bach. We have been rehearsing it for the past few months and will perform it at the stunning church of Reykjavík, Hallgrímskirkja, on the 10th and 11th of June. If you happen to be in Iceland at this time, you can not miss this! I look forward to these concerts as much as I looked forward to performing at the Oscars. The energy of this piece goes as high as the sky and higher still. Tickets are available here: https://midi.is/tonleikar/1/9989/J_S_BACH-Messa_i_H-Moll
Last week I attended a premiere of a Czech movie "Miluji Te Modre" in Prague, having composed music for it. Here I am on the picture with a Czech musician Michael Foret, who also contributed to the film's score with a song. This was a lovely project for me to have worked on and I so enjoyed seeing the finished movie with my music in the cinema. Congratulations to the talented actors and the dedicated director. A special thanks to Tomas Krejci, my dear friend.
This is my dear friend Mary. She is an amazing thinker and doer, and hearing her talk used to only be possible while sitting at her table with cup of tea. But now, she has written a book and done this wonderful TEDx talk, and her gift to the world is thus available to all interested. Please watch if you feel so inclined. ❤️
I just got back from a wonderful gig with Glen and band in Dublin. I landed early on Monday morning, and had the whole day to myself in that beautiful town which still feels like home to me. I hung out, walked a lot, drank a lot of cups of tea to make up for the lack of sleep the previous night, and before I knew it, it was time for soundcheck and I got immersed in the lovely energy of all those delightful musicians sharing a stage. What a wonderful time it was, catching up with dear friends and hearing those beautiful songs of Glens again. I was so busy having fun, i didnt take many pictures. Only this ONE. ❤️
