A Winged Victory For The Sullen return to earth to compose the new score to Wayne McGregor’s Atomos and announce UK tour dates.
Wayne McGregor is best known to many in the music world for his choreography on Radiohead’s Lotus Flower video, and most recently for the Atoms For Peace’s video Ingenue. After a year of playing A Winged Victory For The Sullen’s self-titled album during dance practice, the Royal Ballet resident director contacted Adam Wiltzie and Dustin O’Hallaran to provide the score to his new sixty-minute full-length work Atomos.
Atomos will have it’s world premier on October 9-12th at Sadler’s Wells London, in which Adam and Dustin along with their string ensemble will be performing the score live, before Wayne and his famed Random Dance company take the production on a two year world tour.
Known for their other worldly ambience and slow down-approach to music, A Winged Victory For The Sullen will make for an interesting accompaniment to McGregor’s newest contemporary dance
A Winged Victory For The Sullen will perform a string of dates throughout a few select towns in England, leading up to the premiere of Atomos. The boys will return to America in March 2014 with a string of dates along the East Coast too:

‘The nature of this project has invariably guided our compositions into a strange world we did not create. We are really testing the ability to leave vanity, and the safety of our whole notes in the closet. It seems quite fitting that our next musical output is also our first foray into dance with this lovely human being, from that island across the pond, Wayne Mcgregor. We continue into the unknown.’ – Adam Bryanbaum Wiltzie & Dustin O’Halloran
