A Winged Victory for the Sullen are an ambient music project by Redbird composers and frequent collaborators Adam Bryanbaum Wiltzie and Dustin O’Halloran. The duo met in Italy many years ago and initially only intended to release a single record as A Winged Victory for the Sullen, but the project has continued to live on and the pair have recorded a total of three full length albums and an EP since forming in 2011.
In 2013, A Winged Victory for the Sullen were commissioned by famed choreographer Wayne McGregor to compose the score for his critically acclaimed dance piece Atomos. This music would form the basis for their second album, Atomos. Another high note in Wiltzie and O’Halloran’s collaboration came in 2015, when Mary Anne Hobbs enlisted A Winged Victory to perform at the BBC Proms.
