Since 2010, Øystein has set up his own independent music production studio, publishing company, and record label. He works and operates out of his studio Mountain Sound Recording in Mosjøen, Norway.
Øystein may be most recognized for his work in tech. In 1997, he started his own digital media agency Wika Media, focusing on developing applications and content for the educational sector. Then in 1998, he co-founded an independent creative agency called IMAGEVOICE. He holds a Bachelor of Music from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology and a Bachelor of Media Studies from The University of Oslo.
These days, Øystein dedicates most of his time to composing, arranging, recording, mixing, and mastering music for bands/artists, video creators, and film/TV producers. He writes in various genres and styles, from straight-up pop/rock tracks to more cinematic scores. The music is available for sync licensing through his own Production Music Library.
In addition to his work in production music, Øystein is recording his first solo instrumental guitar album consisting of unreleased music written between 1986 and 1997. This music can be described as riff-based melodic instrumental hard rock featuring all flavors of the electric guitar. The album is set to be released in 2023.
