Even Grimelid is a composer for film and media, currently based in Trondheim, Norway. He has successfully completed a bachelor’s degree in music at Sir Paul McCartney’s LIPA (Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts), and is now establishing himself in the commercial market.
Even’s first musical experience was listening to Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf on his parents’ vinyl player. He can still remember how the music made him feel, and how the story was told by the individual instruments. Since then, he has always emphasized the importance of provoking emotions through music.
At an early age, Even was heavily influenced by Norwegian traditional music. He was later trained in classical piano, and started playing the guitar at the age of 14. He proceeded to play guitar in multiple rock and metal bands, and has in the last years been studying jazz and contemporary composition. This mixture of skills and influences has made him able to compose music in a broad range of styles and genres.
Even offers services to film and media companies, independent filmmakers, software development companies and various other businesses in the media sector. He offers original scores to film and software productions of all types and sizes, music to commercials and promotional campaigns, jingles/songs to TV and radio, and music to dance and theatre performances.
