STREAM Q2 MUSIC NOW

For Mixtapes, we ask today's leading musicians, authors, filmmakers and artists to assemble an hour of new-music that they find particularly compelling or that exemplifies the shifting boundaries of today's musical climate. Today's mixtape comes courtesy of Iclandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson.

"I selected music that has inspired me in the past, by composers that are still, in many cases, an inspiration to me. Sometimes it's just as much about their approach to art, life and music. I like composers that are uncompromising but are not afraid of making a visceral connection with the listener." -Jóhann Jóhannsson
