Biography

Considering his gift for writing melodies and extensive musical training,
it’s no wonder composer Veigar Margeirsson has quickly become one
of the most sought-after composers in the world of film, television and
advertising.
Born in Iceland, and based in Los Angeles, Veigar is truly a rising star
in the world of film music. Having scored several independent features,
and films for Showtime and NBC Studios, his original compositions have

also captured the ears of music supervisors worldwide. Veigar’s music
has been featured in dozens of award-winning marketing campaigns for many consumer
products, and most notably in campaigns for virtually every movie studio, including such
films as Iron Man, No Country for Old Men, Beowulf and Batman Begins, just to name a few.
His classical training and wide-ranging work with symphony orchestras and jazz ensembles
have enabled him to create distinctive and memorable compositions, combining the latest
music technology with traditional scoring techniques.
Veigar, who began his college education at Boston’s Berklee College of Music, holds a
master’s degree in music composition from the University of Miami. He was later accepted
into the celebrated film scoring program at the University of Southern California, where he
studied with the likes of the legendary Elmer Bernstein and the award-winning composer
Christopher Young.
