M83 will score futuristic new Cirque Du Soleil show, VOLTA

This post was originally published on this site

Anthony Gonzales, the creative force behind the effervescent electronic music band M83, will be collaborating with Cirque du Soleil on an upcoming circus experience, VOLTA. Gonzales will compose the score and serve as musical director for the show. The futuristic event will make its official debut in Cirque du Soleil’s home city of Montreal, Canada in spring of 2017.

The show’s website describes VOLTA as such:

VOLTA tells a spellbinding story about the freedom to choose and the thrill of blazing your own trail. Inspired in part by the adventurous spirit that fuels the culture of action sports, the show weaves the adrenaline rush of acrobatics into a visually striking world driven by a stirring melodic score.

VOLTA is a story of transformation. It is about being true to oneself, fulfilling one’s true potential, and the power of the group to make that possible. It celebrates freedom as a movement.

Though the score will be Gonzales first in a live setting, VOLTA’s futuristic aesthetic seems to perfectly complement many of the themes in M83’s back catalogue. Tickets are already on sale at the Cirque du Soleil website here.
