Something excited for fans of the Messrs O’Halloran and Wiltzie. We reviewed their latest album here, and it’s quite lovely. They’re surprisingly good live, so get along to the Pavilion if you can for their only Dublin date. Full details and blurb below.
A Winged Victory for the Sullen – Pavilion Theatre – 10 February 2015
PAVILION THEATRE PRESENTS A WINGED VICTORY FOR THE SULLEN
Pavilion Theatre are proud to present A Winged Victory For The Sullen for a very special intimate performance on 10 February 2015. Tickets for their only Dublin date priced €24 are on sale now from the Pavilion box office and website (www.paviliontheatre.ie).
A Winged Victory For The Sullen (Erased Tapes) is the collaboration between Stars Of The Lid founder, & Brussels resident Adam Bryanbaum Wiltzie, and Berlin based composer, Dustin O’Halloran “mixing classical, ambient and post-rock sounds to create music with grand (piano) ambitions” (The Guardian). On May 24th 2007, in Bologna, Italy, Adam was on tour and playing with the late Mark Linkous & Sparklehorse, on what would be their final European tour. That night Adam invited friend and colleague Francesco Donadello to see the concert, and Francesco’s guest this evening was composer Dustin O’Halloran. After consuming a bottle of cheap bourbon, and the untimely death of Linkous, a curious friendship began. Since releasing their self-titled debut in September of 2011 they have toured the world playing almost 100 concerts, and last year they caught the ear of London Royal Ballet choreographer Wayne McGregor. Wayne used the music as warm up during practice sessions, realizing they were the perfect fit to fill the musical void of his new long dance piece “Atomos” which debuted in October 2013.
