Jóhann Jóhannsson is an Icelandic composer and producer of contemporary music. He has created several dozen soundtracks, including for "Prisoners", starring Jake Gyllenhall and Hugh Jackman, and "For Ellen" starring Paul Dano, screened during the second edition of Transatlantyk.

Widely acclaimed, he has performed in the Parisian Pompidou Centre, London's Barbican Centre, and other major venues.
