Yesterday – Wednesday 14th January – saw Arca give an exclusive live performance to soundtrack Hood By Air’s show as special guests at the Pitti Uomo 87 fashion event in Florence, Italy. At the event, Arca performed a bespoke musical score titled ‘Sheep’ which featured eleven tracks of original Arca music. ‘Sheep’ is now available as a free download exclusively via Arca’s Soundcloud:
‘Sheep (Hood By Air FW15)’ tracklist:
The performance and download follow the recent success of Arca’s debut album Xen, which was released in November 2014 on Mute to widespread acclaim. Described by The Observer as “one of those albums that elegantly restates the appeal of digital music, expressing hues and states of being that fall outside the analogue spectrum” and Uncut as “a stunning showcase of his emotional, slippery, psychologically fraught production style” Xen was one of 2014’s defining debut records.
