Since Hallur bought a drumkit for the money he got for confirmation gifts, he has been in many rock bands. The highlights being Gypsy the winner of the Icelandic band contest, Ham, and his own band Thirteen that has released 4 CD's in the whole of Europe. When starting Thirteen Hallur started experimenting with various instruments to get his musical ideas across, and on the last 2 cd's he has done everything himself. Writing the music, playing all instruments, recorded and mixed. This is the way it has been in all his work for dance and theater.
am not particularily good at all the instruments I play, but it often
takes less time for me to stumble through the parts myself, than explaining
them to others. There is also freedom and excitement when you don't
know what you are doing. It's more "playing with instruments",
and it often gives more character than with the "service" of
a professional player".
