Released a series of albums in the mid-1990s with the popular artist Sigur Rós. Began composing for film in the mid-1980s, and has since written music for over 20 Icelandic features, but only made his international debut in 2003, on the Jane Campion-directed thriller "In the Cut" starring Meg Ryan.
