This year’s Peiraios 260 programme draws to a close with a huge surprise. Having won numerous accolades for her soundtrack in Todd Philips’ Joker (Academy Award, BAFTA, Critics’ Choice Movie Award, Golden Globe), Hildur Guðnadóttir has also haunted viewers with her original music for HBOs’s award-winning TV series Chernobyl, which also won her a Grammy award.

The Icelandic musician and composer recorded the soundtrack for Chernobyl at the decommissioned Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant in Lithuania, where she and her collaborators Chris Watson and Sam Slater studied and utilised the acoustic possibilities of the plant with its area of 600 meters, incorporating machine sounds, natural instruments, electronics and, occasionally, the composer’s own voice. Now, Hildur Guðnadóttir invites Athenian audiences to enjoy the music of Chernobyl live, in another defunct factory at Peiraios 260, recreating her unique, atmospheric soundscapes.
