A Winged Victory for the Sullen have earned cult status over the past decade. The pair is made up of Dustin O’Halloran and Adam Wiltzie, who have carved out a grand, stirring sound amongst the so-called neoclassical and ambient world – tags which they don’t use themselves but with which they’ve inevitably become associated. Important innovators both in their own right and as a duo, they’ve separately had a hand in iconic film scores and game-changing ambient-classical groups. Their material together has produced a series of singular releases shaped by their unique collaborative process.

A Winged Victory for the Sullen began with a friendship. Composers Dustin O’Halloran and Adam Bryanbaum Wiltzie met backstage in 2007, introduced by a mutual friend. Four years after their introduction, their eponymous debut emerged in all its splendor: a grand, elegiac composition, featuring seven different harmonic landscapes, redolent of the large acoustic spaces in which it was recorded, including Berlin’s Grunewald Church and GDR radio studios along the river Spree.

The duo has became known for a unique combination of Adam’s ambient guitar drone and Dustin’s sparse piano.
Their music is praised as unforgettable and voluminous, forward thinking and profoundly elegant.
