Iceland’s Jóhann Jóhannsson, nominated for two Oscars® for his scores for The Theory of Everything and Sicario, is highly praised by pop music critics. This special show celebrates the release of a new record returning to the curiously wonderful dissonance between traditional instrumentation and electronics. To open, one of contemporary music's most compelling record labels, Reykjavík's Bedroom Community, marks its tenth anniversary with label founders Valgeir Sigurðsson, Nico Muhly, and others. 

The LA Phil has presented a number of pieces by Daníel Bjarnason, who returns with an enthralling survey of new Icelandic music, ranging from Askell Masson‘s gripping solo drum song to new works for large ensembles.
