Album: The Theory of Everything
Artist: Jóhann Jóhannsson
Description: The Theory of Everything is a biographical romantic drama film about the life of Jane and Stephen Hawking. For the subject matter, Jóhannsson has created an intimate score with moments of spirited movement and moments of deep personal trouble. The music focuses more on Hawking as a person and less on his science which I think lends itself to the writer. Piano, strings, and harp make up the bulk of the score and the melodies are short but sweet. The music is not overly dramatic and will serve as fine accompaniment to the click-clack of your keys.
