Jóhann Jóhannsson - Orphée album
Orphée traces a path from darkness into light, inspired by the various re-tellings of the ancient tale of the poet Orpheus, from Ovid’s to Jean Cocteau’s.
Listen to Orphée by Johann Johannsson on Deezer.
Orphée, the latest album by the Icelandic composer and filmmaker Jóhann Jóhannsson is billed as his first studio album in six years since the somber and excellent The Miners’ Hymns. But during that time Jóhannsson has released eight records-three of which were scores to major films (including Sicario & The Theory of Everything ) and the rest music for smaller film projects, one of which Jóhannsson directed himself. But with even The Miners’ Hymns itself serving as a score to a film, the particular criteria for which Jóhannsson deems a record to be a studio album as opposed to a film.

In the six years between And in the Endless Pause There Came the Sound of Bees and Orphée, Jóhann Jóhannsson became a celebrated film composer, earning back-to-back Oscar nominations for his life-affirming score for The Theory of Everything and his ominous, rough-edged music for Sicario. During this time, Jóhannsson continued to work on personal projects including this, his Deustche Grammophon debut.

Genre: Modern Classical. Having never paid a great deal to his soundtracks, simply because the movies he had worked on didn't spark my interest as far as films that required a coherent soundtrack go, this album is really the only thing I've heard of his and it is gorgeous. I do wonder now, what his bladerunner soundtrack would have sounded like, and hope to fully devour his work, in his honor.
Album · 2016 · 15 Songs. The dynamic, award-winning composer Jóhann Jóhansson takes up the tragic Greek tale of Orpheus in his first album for Deutsche Grammophon. Orphée features a kaleidoscopic array of instrumentations, from string quartet to electronics and choir, drawing from the Icelandic composer’s minimal, serene style to produce a focused, postmodern foray into atmosphere and myth. Orphée Jóhann Jóhannsson.
