WATCH: Jamie xx-Scored Ballet “Tree of Codes” Premieres at Manchester International Festival
Videos of the performance have already surfaced online.
Electronic sampling artist and highly sought after collaborator Jamie xx somehow found the time in his very busy 2015 to score a contemporary ballet called Tree of Codes.
The ballet—inspired by the eponymous Jonathan Safran Foer novel—premiered at the Manchester International Festival (the same cultural fest featuring Damon Albarn‘s wonder.land) last Thursday. Tree of Codes includes stunning lighting and visual effects by Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson.
Footage of the performance just surfaced online, which features brand-new music from the artist behind last month’s phenomenal In Colour. Check it out below.
In Colour is out now via Young Turks. There’s no set schedule for Tree of Codes to move stateside yet.
