Composer Hilmar Thórdarson writes music in the field of contemporary classical music and electro-acoustic music.

As a composer, researcher, and educator, Thórdarson’s oeuvre bear witness to this ongoing quest, as he creates soundscapes that further point the way to new unexplored possibilities. His openness to radical ideas is reflected in his compositions, whether that might be an interactive piece for a solo instrument or a full symphonic orchestral work.
