“I started writing this album in 2009, using a number of simple contrapuntal themes. I began to reshape and transfigure these ideas, writing many different variations. These renderings slowly mutated over time in a process of deconstruction and re-assembly, to the extent that the original versions began to fade into the darker corners of my hard disk. Unlike many of my previous albums, this one didn’t start out with a conceptual or narrative theme binding the music together. Rather, the music seemed to be waiting for its form, for its momentum.” – Jóhann Jóhannsson
“Sicario composer Jóhann Jóhannsson is the next big thing in film music” – Wired (2016)
“A composer at the height of his exquisite powers” – Q (2015)
“His stirring use of silence and aching melodies are entrancing.” – New Yorker (2012)
“With music this hypnotic, who needs drugs?” – NPR (2012)
