Wise Music Group has renewed its publishing partnership with Oscar-winning composer Hilda Gudnadottir.

She is currently working on a new solo album for the classical music label Deutsche Grammophon, as well as composing for video games.

Her work for film and television includes Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018), Mary Magdalene (2018), Journey’s End (2017) and episodes of the Icelandic television series Trapped

Wise Music also has representation rights of Gudnadottir's back catalogue albums, Saman (2014), Leyfdu Ljosinu (2012), Without Sinking (2009) and Mount A (2006) on behalf of Touch Music/Fairwood Music.
