A Winged Victory For The Sullen have joined forces with Wayne McGregor to compose a score for his new full-length work, Atomos.

Wayne McGregor, best know to the music world for his choreography on Radiohead's 'Lotus Flower' visual, is the Resident Director of the Royal Ballet. He contacted Adam Wiltzie and Dustin O'Hallaran after playing their self-titled album for a year in dance practice.

Adam and Dustin will perform the score live along with a string ensemble at its world premier at London's Sadler's Wells from 9-12th October. McGregor and his Random Dance company will then take Atomos on a two year world tour. A Winged Victory For The Sullen will also play a string of UK before the premier.

The duo said of the project:

"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."
