The Sun's Gone Dim - A Tribute to Johann Johannsson


Johann Johannsson died on Friday, February 9, 2018.

Devastating. 

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.

Because I cross post all these mixes over on Mixcloud I am not able to make a mix with nothing but Johannsson music. 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.

Thank you for this. I too was saddened by his untimely passing have recently discovered his music via the Arrival soundtrack and have gone on to collect several of his pieces.

Strange how the autopsy results were never publicized.

Vaughn - I LOVE the Arrival soundtrack! Thanks for listening and commenting.

Interstellar - You're right, it is a bit odd. Part of me doesn't want to know though.
