The Emmy-awarded American composer and pianist joins the musicians of Ergon Ensemble in a rare musical coming together that highlights the romantic side of minimalism. Known from his solo albums, the ambient music duo A Winged Victory for the Sullen, and his film and series soundtracks (for instance, the famous Opus 23, heard in Sofia Coppola’s film Marie Antoinette), Dustin O’Halloran is coming to Athens for a unique meeting with the Greek public. In this he is joined by the versatile musicians of Ergon Ensemble, in their third appearance in the context of the SNFCC's Cosmos concerts. 

Dustin O’Halloran was born in Phoenix, Arizona, and spent most of his childhood in Los Angeles and Hawaii. His involvement with music started with classical piano studies at the age of seven, yet his first public performances came through the indie rock band Devics. In 2004, he released his debut solo album, Piano Solos. Two years later, he also established himself as a film composer, with tracks of his included in the soundtrack of Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette. Since then, he has worked on dozens of films and TV productions. In 2011, he founded the duo A Winged Victory for the Sullen, together with Adam Wiltzie. Versatile and open to challenges, in 2017 he served as producer for Katy Perry’s song “Into Me You See,” while his latest personal works have been released by Deutsche Grammophon since 2019. Dustin O’Halloran has won an Emmy award for his music for the TV series Transparent and has been nominated for an Academy Award, Golden Globe and BAFTA for his music for the film Lion, along with German musician and composer Hauschka.
