Sævar Helgi Jóhannsson
Sævar Helgi Jóhannsson, a.k.a. S.hel, is usually found in front of a wall of electronic devices, merging soundscapes, fine-tuning and fusing compositions to create ethereal moods and sounds. His training as a pianist included both western classical music as well as jazz and more rhythmic disciplines. He graduated as a composer from the Iceland Arts Academy in 2020. Sævar Helgi looks to theatre, films, literature and other creative individuals for inspiration and ´fuel´ and has taken on a variety of different projects during his career, such as writing original scores for theatre and short films. Within his creative practice, his main aspiration is to continue writing music for moving image and theatre. In addition to his work as a composer, Sævar teaches the piano, accompanies choirs and collaborates with artists from a range of disciplines in Reykjavík. In September 2018 Sævar began working with Sigrun on projects which would, as time went on, become a part of MetamorPhonics in Iceland. S.hel released his EP “Lucid” in 2018 follwed by an LP called “Disconnect” in March 2020.
