    IBM 1401- A User's Manual


    First Ever Vinyl Pressing


    Deluxe Gatefold Sleeve


    2x Clear LP


    Two Bonus Tracks


    Never before pressed on vinyl, IBM 1401, A User's Manual, is one of Jóhann Jóhannsson's most-loved works. Originally released in 2006, the decade since its release has seen Jóhann establish himself as one of the most important composers in the world, notably scoring movies such as Arrival, Blade Runner 2049, Sicario and The Theory of Everything. Johann's scores have been nominated for two Academy Awards®, two Golden Globes®, a Grammy® and three BAFTA® awards. He was awarded the Golden Globe® for Best Original Score for The Theory Of Everything.


    Inspired by the work his father did in the sixties when chief maintenance engineer of one of Iceland's first computers, Jóhann originally wrote IBM 1401, A User's Manual to accompany a dance piece by long-standing collaborator and friend, Erna Ómarsdóttir. For the album release, he rewrote the piece for a sixty-piece string orchestra, with a new final movement (built around a poem by Dorothy Parker) and incorporating both electronics and reel-to-reel recordings made by his father and friends in 1971 of the IBM 1401 mainframe computer singing the hymn Ísland Ögrum Skorið by Sigvaldi Kaldalóns as it was being decommissioned.


    The first ever pressing of IBM 1401, A User's Manual comes in a deluxe gatefold sleeve, reworked by Chris Bigg (v23) from his original design. Pressed on clear vinyl, two live tracks recorded with the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra have also been added.

    McCanick Soundtrack


    1000 Unit Limited Edition Vinyl


    An intrepid musical enigma. - BBC


    Directed by Josh C. Waller and starring Rachel Nichols, Cory Monteith
    and Mike Vogel, McCanick tells the story of a narcotics detective on
    the hunt for a seemingly harmless young criminal who know the truth
    about the cop's past. The film takes place over the course of 24 hours.


    The music is composed by acclaimed Icelandic
    composer Jóhann Jóhannsson who recently scored Denis
    Villeneuve's Prisoners. The score is beautiful, elegant and haunting
    and does not fit the traditional definition of film music. Jóhann
    Jóhannsson belongs to this generation of modern composers such as
    Max Richter, Clint Mansell, and Cliff Martinez who combine classical
    orchestration with electronic music. Famous for his melancholic solo
    albums, Jóhann Jóhannsson has created with McManick a score that
    stands on its own and plays out as a full on artist record
    complementing an already rich and beautiful repertoire.
