Why do we like this?

My bones are still shaking from a recent performance of Atomos at the Sadler's Wells in northeast London. The performance -- an original ballet choreographed by the masterful Wayne McGregor -- was accompanied by neoclassical duo A Winged Victory For The Sullen (AWVFTS), who scored the original composition. Their sound could have turned rocks into sand, altogether a visceral crescendo made for movement.

I'm not well-versed in ballet, so trying to follow the narrative felt like reading absurdist literature -- i.e. difficult to follow. But that's neither here nor there. With such emotive music, I could easily appreciate the corporeal play, being taken by the sweeping of feet timed to stage tones and string tunes.

Back in July, I raved about Atomos, the album. Today, I still only have spectacular things to say. This music is enchanting, something that can immensely enhance the intensity of kinetic space.

I highly suggest you stay on top of AWVFTS on their website to find out when you can experience something like this for yourself.
