Jóhann Jóhannsson: Music in Documentary Film


Icelandic composer, experimenter, and creator of the Ji.hlava festival spot for 2017, Jóhann Jóhannsson (1969) writes electroacoustic, minimalism-influenced film music, for which he has earned numerous awards for its originality and sensitivity to the inner rhythm of the film. He works with Hollywood directing stars as well as with independent filmmakers. He created the fantastic brass accompaniment for the film The Miners’ Hymn, which was screened at the Ji.hlava IDFF in 2016. During his lecture, he will discuss ways of creating film music and his own personal methods.
