A Winged Victory For The Sullen original set


Join us for this one-off event which pairs a set by A Winged Victory For The Sullen, frontrunners of the ambient music vanguard, with the achingly beautiful final symphony of Jóhann Jóhannsson performed by the acclaimed National Symphony Orchestra.

A Prayer to the Dynamo was inspired by Jóhannsson’s fascination with technology; in particular field recordings he made at Iceland’s Elliðaár power plant. Underpinned by the hypnotic reverberations of these recordings, Jóhannsson’s masterwork provides the ideal prelude to a set from two of his friends and collaborators—cult ambient music duo A Winged Victory For The Sullen.


Renowned for their stirring, cinematic soundscapes, Adam Wiltzie and Dustin O’Halloran’s unmissable set at NMD 2024 comes in the wake of performances at some of the world’s most celebrated venues, including the Barbican and the BBC Proms.
