Speaking about the score, Högni says: “when I was asked by Baltasar [Kormákur] – the director and show creator – I started writing so when the filming was finished, I had already written a number of pieces for the show. As relatively inexperienced in the field I imagined that my work was finished and the rest was a matter of post-production and music editing. However it immediately became clear that my ambitions and the nature of the project called for second, third and fourth wind in order to fulfil the auditory architecture that needed to be built.”
Realising it was a monumental task, Högni kept a strict schedule every day – writing and arranging in the morning; recording and mixing in the afternoon; presenting to the producer each evening – to then repeat the process the following day.
