As part of their studies in the department of decorative art at the Royal Academy of Art in Stockholm, students were given the task of making suggestions for wall decorations in a new music hall that was being built in the city. Ásmundur made several suggestions, including Image of Music and Image of Dance. It was common practice for student suggestions to be chosen for implementation in such projects, but this did not happen in this case. However, Ásmundur was offered a job working on the installation of plaster decorations that were chosen to adorn the music hall, as he had demonstrated his skill as a craftsman during the making of the suggestions. He worked on this project during the winter of 1925-26, and Konserthuset was inaugurated in 1926.
