Icelandic composer and singer/songwriter Biggi Hilmars has signed a new publishing deal with Boosey & Hawkes, part of Imagem. The deal covers all of his past and future works.

"I am really happy and excited to be working with the Imagem team," said Hilmars. "They are lovely, forward-thinking people, who care for their artists. I am hopeful our work together will take my career to the next heights."

A multi-instrumentalist, Biggi Hilmars has developed a distinctive, haunting, provocative, original music style which blends classical, electronic, ambient, avant-garde and pop influences. It’s a distinctive sound that has made him one of the most in-demand music composers for film, movie trailers, commercials and television.

Commissions have included the film soundtrack to Beeba Boys by award-winning director Deepa Mehta, the official movie trailers for Thomas Vinterberg’s Far From the Madding Crowd and SKY’s mini-series Olive Kitteridge, music for the BBC feature documentary film My Brother the Ark Raider by Jonathan Carr and movie trailers for Ridley Scott and Kevin MacDonald’s How I Live Now and Christmas in a Day.

He has composed music for commercials for Allianz, IBM and Mercedes-Benz, and most recently created a specially commissioned score for the new Thomson Holidays TV advert A Day in the Sun, recorded by the London Chamber Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios. Biggi Hilmars shares his working life between Reykjavik, London, Paris, New York and Los Angeles.
