Soundartist & composer
Born in Iceland, Magnússon relocated to Copenhagen, Denmark in the mid 90's. He has a degree of Electronic Music Composition from The Royal Academy of Music, Aarhus. He now lives in Vienna and Copenhagen. Inspired by the sounds of nature, horror movies, noise, and meditation, Magnusson specialises in atmospheric disturbances through minimalist compositions. While an oppressive hue is often cast upon Magnusson’s work, it is nevertheless always drafted with a sly trace of humor. Magnusson has worked in theatre in Denmark, he has presented his work at various locations, throughout the world including China, Hong Kong, The Philippines, Mexico, Scandinavia, Canada and the USA. Magnusson is co-founder of the Hljóðaklettar record label, member of the duo Vindva Mei and works with Danish based sound artist Yann Coppier (FR), focusing on installation work, both in virtual worlds and physical spaces, as Edition#. Magnússon released 5 digital releases on his Bandcamp site in less than two years starting in 2021. American label Erototox Decodings released a CD called Sub-Photic Scenario in late 2022 and a vinyl record called Komplett Kollaps - a dedication to Jóhann Jóhannsson is coming in September 2023.
