“Here they Used to Build Ships” and “The Rocket Builder” – Jóhann Jóhannsson

Jóhann Jóhannsson is an Icelandic composer and producer. The BBC has called him “an intrepid musical enigma” and his work has been called “elegant, haunting and melancholic”. His music is frequently informed by minimalism, film music, baroque music and drone music and combines classical orchestration with electronic music.

For those who like things a little darker, The Rocket Builder is from Fordlândia, the second installment in a proposed trilogy based on technology and iconic American brand names.
