Erased Tapes and Kranky are pleased to announce the release of A Winged Victory for the Sullen’s ‘ATOMOS VII’. April 28 sees the first installment leading up to the release of the second full length studio album ‘ATOMOS’, and score for choreographer Wayne McGregor’s long form dance piece.
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 & Dustin to see if they could write the score for his new oeuvre.
The duo recorded more than sixty minutes of music over a four month period during the summer of 2013 in Brussels, Berlin and Reykjavik with the help of their longtime collaborative sound engineer Francesco Donadello. This EP also sees the involvement of Ben Frost, who composed the music for McGregor’s previous work ‘Far’.
McGregor, mastermind behind the Random Dance Company and resident choreographer at the Royal Ballet since 2006, is known in popular culture circles for serving as movement director for the film ‘Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’. He has also choreographed the Radiohead video ‘Lotus Flower’ and ‘Ingenue’ by Atoms for Peace.
“While we were re-amping guitars at Greenhouse studios, Ben expressed interest and admiration in the sounds we had created. We were planning for the B-side to be a metamorphosis of part VII, and Ben seemed the obvious choice. With the multi-tracks transformed, it follows a trajectory that we had not felt comfortable with before. But with Ben’s involvement and influence, it was a painless entrance to this crooked, distorted world.” – Adam Bryanbaum Wiltzie
“We never imagined 2013 would be such an explosively creative year. The first record took us 2 years from start to finish, but in the micro span of time over last summer we were able to change the formula for the way we write, record, and let go. It was incredibly liberating.” – Dustin O’Halloran
‘A surprisingly emotional score’ ★★★★ The Telegraph
‘Intense, reflective, occasionally threatening and wholly enveloping’ ★★★★ Times
