Hildur Guðnadóttir, Iceland Airwaves, 2006.
Winner of a 2020 Golden Globe for best score for Joker.
Composer for 2020 Golden Globe winner Chernobyl.
I first saw her perform in Iceland with Stórsveit Nix Noltes and Evil Madness in 2006, and with Múm in Minneapolis in 2009. Hildur stood out even then, especially so with Jóhann Jóhannsson's Evil Madness, an experimental outfit that played “soundtracks for imaginary horror movies”—good training for her current career!
