A Winged Victory for the Sullen, or AWVFTS, is a neoclassical/ambient duo of composers, Dustin O'Halloran, a pianist and Adam Wiltzie, a sound engineer. They often create work that accompanies a visual presentation or a dance production, but also engage in stand alone projects. The duo uses piano, synths, and occasionally, orchestral elements to construct cinematic soundscapes that transports the listener. Their music has a decidedly floating quality that hovers in a ghostly manner. There is not much of a beat, or vocals, and the melodies are fairly subdued by design. It is meditative and immersive, enveloping the listener in sounds, textures, and harmonies, projecting a sense of tranquility and open spaces.
