Mira Calix's speciality is mixing her intimate vocals with jittering beats and experimental electronic textures. She is signed to Warp Records and, as a live performer and DJ, has toured with a broad range of acts, including Radiohead and Aphex Twin. Calix is a truly cutting edge performer who continuously pushes boundaries. Most recently she won a Royal Philharmonic Society Award and the British Composer Award 2009.
Calix has composed a new score for the silent film 'The Adventures of Achmed' by Lotte Reiniger - the first ever feature animation. An ethereal fairytale based on The Arabian Nights, we follow the young Prince Achmed on his adventures as he tries to save the princess from the wicked sorcerer. Combined with Calix's atmospherics it's sure to be a magical evening!
