Jóhann Jóhannsson

The Icelandic composer Jóhannsson is now preparing the score for Blade Runner 2049 and has two Academic nominations to his name (The Theory of Everything and Sicario). This post-classical composer has been breaking new musical and aural ground with his scores and this one is no exception: moody, scary, claustrophobic, “alien” and a brilliant synthesis of his composing style and the needs of the cinema. But you don’t need a screen to hear it.
