Jóhann Jóhannsson is an Iceland-born musician, composer and producer. Jóhann's stately, slow-building and hauntingly melodic music, which frequently combines electronics with classical orchestrations, has been quietly bewitching listeners since he released his first solo record Englabörn in 2002 on the well respected British label Touch.
Jóhann is also an award-winning film composer with 8 international feature film credits to his name as well as a composer for theatre and contemporary dance. He is a prolific collaborator, having worked and performed with artists such as Marc Almond (Stranger Things album), Barry Adamson and Pan Sonic, The Hafler Trio, Jaki Liebezeit, Laetitia Sadier, David Tibet, Baby Dee, Larsen and many more.
The Hilliard Ensemble is unrivalled for its formidable reputation in the fields of both early and new music.
Its distinctive style and highly developed musicianship engage the listener as much in medieval and renaissance repertoire as in works specially written by living composers, often in an orchestral context.
Collaborations include the world premiere of Stephen Hartke’s 3rd Symphony with Lorin Maazel and the New York Philharmonic, they have also collaborated with the Munich Chamber Orchestra with a new work by Erkki-Sven Tüür. In 2007 they joined forces with the Dresden Philharmonic Orchestra to premiere Nunc Dimittis by the Russian composer Alexander Raskatov, also recording this for ECM.. With the release of their third collaboration with Jan Garbarek on the ECM label, Officium Novum, the group continues to tour extensively in Europe. The Hilliard Ensemble remains one of the world's finest vocal chamber groups.

Hi - I haven't linked up with the group before so I plan to stand outside the music shop in the NCH from 7.45 and hope someone recognises me :-) - my phone number is [masked] - looking forward to some lovely sounds..
How many times have you wanted to go to see a band but you can’t rustle up any interest from your circle of friends? “Never heard of them”, “I’m broke”, “Working in the morning”….you’ve heard all the excuses, so you end up missing out.
Gigonometry, an online group of music fans, aims to end the isolation of the dedicated gig goer forever!
Joining is easy, and instantly puts you in touch with hundreds of others in your area. Next time you want to go to a gig, just send your idea to the group, and before you can say “does anyone….?” you’ll have ample company for the night!
And that’s not all; the group often meet up to share music ideas, discuss bands, gigs and festivals, even to write reviews on their favourite gigs, albums, bands.....
