GlerAkur

GlerAkur is the moniker Icelandic composer and sound designer Elvar Geir Sævarsson has chosen to create unique cineastic music apart from his engagement at the National Theater of Iceland, drawing inspiration from Post Rock, Drone, Ambient and Black Metal. The release of GlerAkur's debut EP "Can't You Wait" will coincide with Prophecy Fest 2016. With the title track, Sævarsson gives us an impression of GlerAkur's first album, which is being completed at the moment, whereas the songs "Polycide" and "Willocide" are EP exclusives.

When composer and sound designer Elvar Geir Sævarsson had some time off from his work at the National Theatre of Iceland, he recorded bits of music just for himself, which his friend found so appealing that she sneaked it in for a once-off broadcast on the Icelandic radio. These richly layered walls of sound fortunately found their way onto the desk of Prophecy Productions, who did not hesitate to offer the artist a contract … on the strength of this one track.

The music of GlerAkur – the name being comprised of the Words "gler" (glass) and "akur" (field) – subsumes elements from post rock, drone, ambient and black metal music. It is an intensely atmospheric experience that lends itself to the accompaniment of a narrated story, and indeed, Elvar's first effort under this header was writing a soundtrack to the 1911 play "Bjærg-Eyvind og hans Hustru" ("Eyvindur Of The Mountains") by dramatist Jóhann Sigurjónsson.
