Iceland's Biggi Hilmars' distinctive, provocative sound, described as having ‘unique beauty’, has fast cemented his status as a unique and prolific film composer. Having made a name for himself for his work on film scores, television, movie trailers and commercials, he has also released three solo albums and is currently working on his fourth.   With his roots firmly planted in neoclassical, his cinematic soundscapes encapsulate the picturesque beauty of Iceland. His beautifully crafted, melodic music consistently inspires and always feels both contemporary and timeless, taking the listener on a journey. Biggi is influenced by an eclectic range of composers and musicians, spanning Ennio Morricone, Philip Glass, Max Richter, Björk, Pink Floyd, Radiohead and The Beatles.   As a composer, just some of Biggi's credits include the Nordic TV drama series 'Thin Ice' (Yellowbird & Sagafilm), for which he was nominated for the best score and album at The Icelandic Music Awards 2021. The Grierson Trust award-winning feature documentary 'The Last Igloo', produced by Swan Films for BBC4, the National Geographic adventure series ‘Fiennes: Return to the Nile’ starring Joseph and Ranulph Fiennes, ‘Beeba Boys’, a feature film directed by Academy Award nominee Deepa Mehta and the multi award-winning Channel 4 VR documentary 'Grenfell Our Home', directed by Jonathan Rudd.
