The wonderful composer, Johann Johannsson died on Friday, February 9, 2018.

Devastating. Such a massive loss.

I absolutely adored his compositions.

I am at a complete loss for what to say about his music. So rather than try I made this mix.

Mixcloud has a policy of only 4 tracks from a single artist per mix. So I used 4 Johannsson cuts, some of my favs, and music from other artists that I have always grouped together with Johann.

I hope you will listen to this mix and also go seek out Johannsson's awesome library of music that is keeping his memory alive in this world.

Tracklist is in the comments.



"La magie d'un instant volé, d'une vie envolée et d'une clef qui plus jamais n'ouvrira l'horizon magique d'un lendemain chantant"
Merci une fois de plus, une fois encore pour ce superbe mix dédié à Mr.J.Johannsson

Merci pour vos très gentils mots. Je suis content que tu aies aimé la musique.


Like many I was stunned by the news of Johann's passing, perhaps moreso because I had the good fortune to see / hear him perform several years back, and then found myself sitting and talking with him (mostly about movie soundtracks) over a coupla beers. Thank you for this – a suitably careful, respectful and eclectic mix...

Wow, that is so great that you got to talk with Johann! We all can remember him through his music but it's so cool that you have your conversation to look back on as well. Thanks for listening and sharing your thoughts.


very much so – my memory is of a genuinely warm, curious, engaging person, and will be treasured for some time to come

Thanks for hanging out and absorbing the Johannsson vibe.


This mix got me through my day*


I'm devastated, his mixes always got me through my day.

Thanks for listening.


I'm also very sad about his dead. Next to him so many musiscians die to young. In June I'm on a concert of Max Richter in Düsseldorf/Germany. I will light a candle for Johann.

Thanks for the mix, I appreciate it a lot and find new artists. Thank you

Thanks for stopping by to remember Johann. That Max Richter show sounds awesome. I am very jealous. Cheers!
