Music for late nights or early mornings

Red Barnett is a music project of Haraldur V. Sveinbjörnsson, known to his friends and colleagues as Halli, a Reykjavik based singer/songwriter, producer and arranger who’s musical background lies both in classical and rock music.

His alter ego years developed in the beginning of the 21st century when he moved to Sweden to study classical composition. Many of the songs on his forthcoming album emerged there in the quiet town of Lund. Since his homecoming in 2004, Red Barnett has been recording songs on and off for ten years now, gathering the perfect mixture of soothing sing-alongs and grave dark tunes.

A deeply personal project

As a true hermit sunk into his deeply personal project, Halli/Red Barnett wrote, played and recorded most of the instruments on the album. That being said, a number of dear friends and collaborators devoted their effort and hard work into the project. Most prominent are long time friends from his very first band and teammates in this project - Hannes Friðbjarnarson on drums and Finnur Beck on bass. These three put together their first band when they were 11 years old. One might say it is a sort of a reunion...

10 years in the making

"I've been working on this album for quite a while now. It's a collection of songs that mostly focus on the human condition. Quite a few of them have a certain melancholic aftertaste to them" says Halli.

"In 2005 I did the first takes on the very first track Shine Part II. The development of the album was slow. I worked on it in my spare time which was very limited due to the fact that I was so busy arranging, recording and producing for other artists. Like Lennon said: "Life is what happens to you when you're busy making other plans". But last year I played the final notes on the album and I could not be happier with the result."

"With your support through Karolina fund you give us that extra push we need to get across the finish line..."

"With the recording and mixing of the album finished, we need help to finalize the project. We still need funds for the post-production: mastering, album artwork, manufacturing and distribution. With your support through Karolina fund you give us that extra push we need to get across the finish line" he says, and he emphasises that all Red Barnett supporters will of course get updates and reports on the progress via e-mail.

A little bit about Halli / Red Barnett

Halli studied classical composition in Lund, Sweden. He's a four-time Icelandic Music Awards nominee, known to many in Iceland as a diverse instrumentalist, composer and a songwriter. He also has made a name for himself as an arranger and orchestrator for iconic Icelandic classical, pop and rock artists. He has worked closely with the Iceland Symphony Orchestra doing orchestrations for many of their most popular concerts. Most recently his collaboration with heavy metal band Skálmöld and the ISO resulted in three sold-out concerts and a hugely successful live CD/DVD. The concerts later won the Icelandic Music Awards for the Musical Event of the Year.

Rökkurtónlist fyrir síðkvöld og letimorgna

Red Barnett er sólóverkefni Haraldar V. Sveinbjörnssonar sem er mörgum kunnur úr íslensku tónlistarlífi þó oftast hafi hann starfað á bakvið tjöldin ef svo má segja.

10 ára meðganga

Hugmyndin að Red Barnett kviknaði haustið 2004 þegar Haraldur, oftast kallaður Halli, kom heim úr tónsmíðanámi með fjölda laga í farteskinu. Fyrstu tónarnir voru teknir upp árið 2005 og hefur verkefninu miðað hægt og bítandi síðan, meðfram öðrum fyrirferðarmeiri verkefnum hans. Tónlist Red Barnett er e.t.v. best lýst sem angurværri rökkurtónlist um lífið og tilveruna. Hún er að mestu flutt og tekin upp af honum sjálfum.

„Ég hef lengi gengið með þessa plötu í maganum, eða síðan ca. 2005 en þá tók ég upp fyrstu tónana í laginu Shine (Part II) sem platan heitir í höfuðið á. Upptökur mjökuðust á hraða snigilsins - eins og Lennon sagði: "Life is what happens to you when you're busy making other plans." Maður var líka pínku óöruggur og feiminn að stíga svona út í sviðsljósið svo ég var ekkert að flýta mér of mikið og lagði þeim mun meira kapp á að gera þetta 100%“ segir Halli.

„Hér vonast ég til að geta fjármagnað lokasprettinn og að ég komi plötunni út á vormánuðum.“

„Eftir að hafa tekið upp í skorpum meðfram öðrum verkefnum komst loks skriður á útgáfu í fyrra þegar ég ákvað að hleypa barninu að heiman og fól Hafþóri Tempó Karlssyni hljóðmeistara að hljóðblanda skífuna. Nú vantar bara smiðshöggið. Hér vonast ég til að geta fjármagnað lokasprettinn og að ég komi plötunni út á vormánuðum.“

Frábærir listamenn leggja hönd á plóg

Þó Halli hafi sjálfur annast stærstan hluta hljóðfæraleiks og upptökur þá koma margir góðir vinir hans og listamenn einnig að gerð plötunnar. Þar fara fremstir í flokki þeir Hannes Friðbjarnarson trommari og Finnur Beck bassaleikari (en þeir þrír stofnuðu saman sína fyrstu sveit 11 ára gamlir í Kópavoginum), Arnþór Þórðarson úr Dead Sea Apple á bassa og Kjartan "Diddi" Guðnason úr hljómsveitinni Mönnum Ársins á slagverk ýmiskonar. Ragnar Ólafsson úr Árstíðum syngur raddir og á textann Whispers á plötunni, Kristín Lárusdóttir leikur á selló, Garðar Borgþórsson úr Different Turns spilar á slagverk og tekur upp strengi, og Einar Þór Jóhannsson leikur á rafgítar. Systur Halla, Hrefna Hlín og Þóra Björk, syngja svo bakraddir í tveim lögum.

Strengjaleikarar eru Una Sveinbjarnardóttir, Pálína Árnadóttir, María Huld Markan Sigfúsdóttir og Hildur Ársælsdóttir á fiðlur, Guðrún Hrund Harðardóttir og Edda Rún Ólafsdóttir á lágfiðlur og Margrét Árnadóttir og Gyða Valtýsdóttir á selló.

Halli/Red Barnett hyggst svo halda upp á útgáfuna og um leið stórafmæli sitt þann 17. apríl nk. með veglegum tónleikum í Fríkirkjunni í Reykjavík.

Aðeins meira um Harald V. Sveinbjörnsson

Halli er klassískt menntað tónskáld, en er einnig þekktur sem gítarleikari og lagasmiður sveitarinnar Dead Sea Apple, hljómborðsleikari og einn söngvara Manna ársins og nú nýverið bassaleikari í Buff, auk þess að hafa starfað náið með sveitum eins og Dúndurfréttum og Skálmöld. Hann vann sænsku tónlistarverðlaunin "Morgondagens tonsättare" árið 2004 fyrir hljómsveitarverkið „Sjö byltur svefnleysingjans“ og var tilnefndur til Íslensku tónlistarverðlaunanna fyrir sama verk árið 2005 en hann hefur alls verið tilnefndur fjórum sinnum í hinum og þessum flokkum.

Þá hefur hann unnið með og útsett fyrir fjölda tónlistarmanna, t.a.m. Bubba, Björgvin Halldórsson, Baggalút, Megas, Pál Óskar, 200.000 naglbíta, Fjallabræður, Buff, Dimmu, Kontinuum, Regínu Ósk og færeyska tónlistarfólkið Lenu Anderssen, Lív Næs og Trónd Enni. Hann hefur líka átt útsetningar á fjölmörgum tónleikum Sinfóníuhljómsveitar Íslands með innlendum listamönnum. Má þar nefna hina geysivinsælu Skálmaldartónleika 2013 sem vann til Íslensku tónlistarverðlaunanna nýverið í flokknum Tónlistarviðburður ársins, Hátíðartónleika FTT 2013, Pál Óskar & Sinfó 2010 & 2011, Dúndurfréttir & SÍ 2007 (Pink Floyd The Wall) og Söngbók Gunnars Þórðarsonar 2009.
