Please note the start time of this concert has changed to 8pm.
Kick back and immerse yourself in the otherworldly sonic textures of Adam Wiltzie – known for his ambient work with Stars of the Lid – and melancholy piano master Dustin O’Halloran.
A Winged Victory For The Sullen is not a side project though. It is described by their label, Erased Tapes, as ‘the future of the late night record you have always dreamed of’. Acclaimed choreographer Wayne McGregor seems to share this view.
McGregor was heavily influenced by the duo's 2011 self-titled debut, playing it repeatedly during practices with his core group of dancers. After noticing the group's reaction with the music, he contacted Adam and Dustin to see if they could write the score for his new oeuvre, ATOMOS. The duo recorded more than sixty minutes of music over a four-month period during the summer of 2013 in Brussels, Berlin and Reykjavik. The album is due for release later this year.
'A surprisingly emotional score' ★★★★ Daily Telegraph
'Intense, reflective, occasionally threatening and wholly enveloping' ★★★★ The Times
'A Winged Victory's music, more active than drone and thicker than minimalism, captures movement and freezes it' Pitchfork
