The score for The Theory of Everything is created by the recently deceased (9 February 2018) Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson. Jóhannsson's intricate compositions provide a stunning backdrop to the romantic drama about Stephen and Jane Hawking, portrayed in the film by Eddie Redmayne (Les Misérables) and Felicity Jones (The Amazing Spider-Man 2). He has composed music for many films including scoring director Denis Villeneuvue's film Prisoners and Josh C. Waller's McCanick.
The Theory of Everything is the extraordinary and uplifting story of one of the world's greatest minds, the recently deceased astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, and of two people defying the steepest of odds through love. The film, based on the memoir Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen by Jane Hawking, is directed by Academy Award winner James Marsh (Man on Wire). The film gathered various awards and nominations following its release, ranging from recognition of the film itself to Redmayne and Jones' acting performances, McCarten's screenplay and Jóhann Jóhannsson's score. At the 72nd Golden Globe Awards, Redmayne won the Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama accolade and composer Jóhann Jóhannsson won for the Best Original Score.
Jóhann has released several solo albums and is equally at home writing commissioned works for contemporary ensembles such as Bang On A Can and Theatre of Voicesas he is collaborating with different artists. Amongst them Barry Adamson; Finnish electro band Pan Sonic, Marc Almond, The Hafler Trio, the nom de musique of English avant garde composer Andrew M. McKenzie, CAN drummer Jaki Liebezeit and Stephen O'Malley of the drone metal band Sunn O))).
