Stúlka og drengur (Síðasta blómið) - Einar & Veronica
Einar

Saga að segja frá þessu lagi. Það fæddist út frá ljóði sem ég samdi og fékk hugmyndina sitjandi við hafið. Laglínan fæddist í huganum á mér eins og skot. Hvort hún hafi ekki komið á undan! Man ekki hvað eða hvort eitthvað var að angra mig sem ég þurfti að losa mig við sem er söguþráður ljóðsins. Í laginu er 3-4 erindum ljóðsins sleppt svo það yrði ekki yfir 10 mín að lengd! Ljóðið er ekki augljóst og að lágmarki tvírætt. Fólk getur lesið ýmislegt út úr því sem er allt annað en upprunalega kveikjan mín. Það er ekkert rangt eða rétt. Lagið er tregafullt sem gefur sterka vísbendingu um ljóðið. Ég átti aðeins acoustic demo upptöku af ljóðinu tekin upp á símann minn. Á reyndar líka nokkrar instrumental útgáfur af laginu. Var svo heppinn að kynnast konu frá Ítalíu sem heitir Veronica Biadi og hefur stúderað tónlist. Hún var til í að vinna með mér í þessu lagi og á heiðurinn að útsetningunni sem hún vann upp úr hráu demo upptökunni minni. Spilaði og setti inn hljóðfærin en heimtaði að ég syngi! Þetta hefur verið mjög svo lærdómsríkt ferli og ég lært mikið. Ekki síst af Veronicu. Hún er himinlifandi með útkomuna. Ég er líka sáttur. Gaman að sjá sitt eigið lag og texta fæðast í þessu formi. Svo er smekksatriði hvort fólk líki við lagið. Er frekar langt og rólegt. Takk þið sem hlustið. Goðar kveðjur.

The Last Living Flower (Einar & Veronica)
Einar

I released an acoustic version of this song some time ago. Me and a guitar recorded on my mobile. I was so lucky to get in contact with Veronica Bi (https://soundcloud.com/user-971056972) from Tuscany Italy. We collaborated on this new version. She did all the arrangement and played the instruments but I did the vocal. This song means a lot to me because it was written inspired from a poem of mine I wrote in icelandic. That poem is full of emotions. The english lyrics are not direct translation and it´s impossible to transfer all the emotion and mood into new language. Still I think I managed it pretty much. I love the arrangement because it catches the same emotions and mood which was the inspiration of the song. I know the song is over 5 minutes. I did cut it a little but would ruin the atmosphere if I would cut it more. It´s meant to be at least 5 min and 12 sec. I hope you like it.

Woman

ATTENTION!. I did few changes in the song. Added 2 a kind of a rest sections. One is short and is also the outro. The other is little bit longer and is near the end of the song. I hope it fills the song better. I felt something wanted. Well let me know if you don´t agree. Thank you :) Instrumental track. Wrote the song inspired from a poem of mine. One day I hope to add vocals to it. I don´t hold any rights of the cover photo of the song. It´s from a photo shoot of the brilliant female singer Sandie Shaw. I´m a big fan of course :)

Bæn (demo) Gísli á Uppsölum.
Einar

I wrote this song inspired from a poem written by a extraordinary character who is not with us anymore. He lived all his live on a farm without electricity alone. Never saw TV nor listened to the radio. Hardly saw newspapers. He got "famous" in Iceland when a documentary was made about him. Just one of a kind that man. He wrote some poems and this one really hit my heart and soul. It´s beautiful but also sad. The song was recorded in one take on a mobile.

Follow your heartbeat
Einar

Instrumental in a low or midtempo with piano as the main vocal melody instrument. A song to relax and take your worries away. Why Can´t I Feel Love? Well that´s a real question. I tried to answer in the song :)

I´m not afraid (demo)
Einar

I call this "demo" since it´s acoustic and recorded in one take on my mobile. I wrote the song inspired from a poem by an Australian woman R.M. Auld who publish frequently her poems on Instagram. They are good and this one hit my heart. I felt I needed to express what I felt reading the poem in a song. Here it is.

Those Who Die Live! (demo)
Einar

An acoustic demo version recorded in one take on a mobile. Wrote the lyrics (poem) in icelandic and wrote the song inspired from that poem. This is the english version and I think I managed to get in the same story and emotions.

Experimental Exposure
Einar

ATTENTION. I changed the track a little by taking out on section and added in two section from another song in the same mood. I love to experiment with this song and I think this version does sound ok I hope? Please feel free to give you opinion Thank you. Einar :) Like the title indicates this track is pretty special and yes a kind of an experiment. It´s got a few sections but I hope I managed to combine them into a song that won´t damage any ears! :)

Mirror Of My Soul (Demo)
Einar

Acoustic demo version recorded in one take on a mobile. A ballad I wrote after I wrote the lyrics If I remember correctly. I´ve got a feeling this song could be something with more instruments and arrangament/production recorded in proper studio. Let´s see.
