An award-winning composer with diverse interests and a back catalogue to prove it, Jóhann Jóhannsson is Iceland’s answer to Ludovico Einaudi or Philip Glass and he’s leading the charge to bring contemporary classical music to the masses.
His stunning score for the 2014 Stephen Hawking biopic The Theory of Everything earned him an Academy Award nomination and a Golden Globe award, while his work on the recent drug cartel thriller Sicario saw him move into an entirely different, intensely menacing soundscape that critics adored.
