Her compositional endeavours – installations in museums, dance, theatre, and a successful electronic music duet she is a part of – are establishing her as an expansive artist. Stefánsdóttir assisted Jóhann Jóhannsson in Berlin while he was working on the film Arrival in 2016, graduated with an M.A. in film scoring from New York University in 2017 and worked with Dustin O’Halloran on additional music for Puzzle and The Hate U Give.

Herdís formed her electro-pop duet East of My Youth in 2015.
