Johann Johannsson with Acme, Goran Ivanovic 

When: Sat., Feb. 15, 8 p.m. 2014
For the past decade or so, Denmark-based Icelandic composer Johann Johannsson has created large-scale works that balance sweeping orchestral drama with microscopic electronic detail. Much of his recorded output was originally music for theater, but even the material that began some other way has a narrative undercurrent—according to Johannson, the 2008 album Fordlandia (4AD), which sounds a bit like imagined orchestrations for a Sigur Ros album, is about failed utopias and rocketry. —Peter Margasak, 2010
