Watch Clips Of The Tree Of Codes Ballet Scored By Jamie xx

Jamie xx wrote the score to a new ballet, Tree Of Codes, which premiered at the Manchester International Festival this past Friday. This marks the festival’s first major dance commission, and Jamie xx worked on the project alongside the Paris Opera Ballet’s choreographer Wayne McGregor and the Icelandic-Danish artist Olafur Eliasson, who arranged all of the work’s stunning lighting effects. Jamie xx’s new record, In Colour, was positioned in the top 5 of our 50 Best Albums Of 2015 So Far list, and from what we can hear of the Tree Of Codes score, the ballet arrangements are similarly sparse and emotive. Watch clips from Tree Of Codes below.
