Icelandic film composer Biggi Hilmars releases new EP album 'Ephemeral Dream'

Press Release: July 23, 2019

The songwriter and producer of composers known as Biggi Hilmars has released his latest official EP album, “Ephemeral Dream.” The EP album contains 4 original Biggi Hilmars tracks for an approximate total listening time of 15 minutes. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Soaring, sweeping, and stretching out in all directions like a great, rolling sea, “Ephemeral Dream” showcases Biggi Hilmars as one of today's most evocative film composers and encapsulates his contemporary work in a way fans will not have heard before.

Iceland's Biggi Hilmars cites as main artistic influences Pink Floyd, Philip Glass, Sonic Youth, David Bowie, Brian Eno, The Beatles, and Radiohead. Hilmars's own sound takes elements from each of these and adds something fresh and unique for a result unlike anything today's music fans have heard before. With an emphasis on rising builds, big deliveries, and intrigue around every corner, “Ephemeral Dream” by Biggi Hilmars has a little something for everybody.

Asked to describe the overall meaning of “Ephemeral Dream,” Biggi Hilmars writes, “It's a combination of film-score pieces that I have created and collected in the past two years or so. They all have in common the sense of power, explosion, hope and fear.”

Far from being more of the same from Hilmars, however, this particular clutch of recent material has a place close to the composer's heart. Hilmars explains that this inspired the release of these tracks as a standalone EP record.

“I feel there is a new tone and depth in my music on these, so I really wanted to share them with my fans and the world as a short album. On every song I am hoping to take you on a journey, whether intense, exciting, hopeful or melancholic. I hope you enjoy.”

Film director Cecilie Mosli writes of the new EP album, “The music Biggi Hilmars is making on Ephemeral Dream is so powerful and emotional and sensitive. It inspires and gives me peace at the same time.”

“Biggi Hilmars’ new EP feels like the soundtrack of winter finally giving way to spring,” writes Rudy Chung of Pusher Music, Los Angeles. “It is an exhilarating listening experience, immaculately crafted.”

Music Supervisor of “The Theory of Everything,” Sarah Bridge, writes, “Icelandic composers & musicians have mastered the fusion of classical & popular music & Biggi Hilmars is no exception. His music retains the unique beauty & cinematic soundscape that encompasses my love for the sound of Iceland.”

Hilmars has composed original scores for BBC 2 and National Geographic, and for shows such as Channel 4's “Grenfell Our Home,” Norway's “20/20,” and “Beeba Boys” by Academy Award Nominee Deepa Mehta, as well as for official movie trailers for films such as “I Smile Back” with Sarah Silverman and “Far from the Madding Crowd” with Carey Mulligan. Hilmars has also composed for acclaimed director Ridley Scott, recorded with the London Chamber Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios, and for companies including Apple, Skoda, IBM, Chevrolet, and Mercedes Benz.

“Ephemeral Dream” by Biggi Hilmars is available from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, film-score fans.
