Just before the Christmas feeling sets in - go a and see ‘Arrival’ with Theatre of Voices on almost every track - in shapes and sounds you’ve never hear before! Premiere in Denmark Dec. 1st ! Jóhann Jóhannsson talks to the Guardian about the soundtrack: Go with your gut “I knew that I wanted to use voices as one of the prime instruments in the score of a film that is primarily about language and communication. But I wanted to use the voice in a different way, so I worked with an ensemble called Theatre Of Voices. They’re masters of both early music and contemporary music, so have a very good command of exotic vocal techniques. I worked with Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe; he is not academically trained, but his voice is an amazing, powerful and flexible instrument.” Expand your horizons “In terms of voices, I was very influenced by Stockhausen’s Stimmung, a piece for six voices and microphones. But I was also listening a lot to spectral composers like Gérard Grisey and Horatiu Rădulescu.” Read more: https://www.theguardian.com/music/2016/nov/26/arrival-johann-johannsson-soundtrack-oscar-nominated
