Unpublished music of the brilliant, late composer Johann Johansson is being released as NFTs, it seems.

The loss of composer Johann Johansson is still keenly felt, with his music to films such as Arrival and Sicario very much living on. Sadly, the late composer’s estate is now looking to capitalise on previously unpublished music, via NFTs.

If you’ve not had the pleasure of NFTs before, then they’re billed as unique digital collectables. Their critics don’t quite call them that.

That notwithstanding, Johannsson’s estate will be releasing music such as Johansson’s unpublished work for Blade Runner 2049, for instance, but it seems like it’ll be NFT-exclusive.

To give you a flavour of the responses to the announcement thus far…
