"In this special commission for Bird's Eye View, renowned musician and composer Mira Calix will perform her musical accompaniment for The Adventures of Prince Achmed (1926), the first feature length animation ever made. Signed to Warp Records, Calix is winner of the British Composer Award 2009 and has worked with artists such as Radiohead, the London Sinfonetta and Aphex Twin. She has performed all over the world at events like Southbank's Ether festival. At this unique event she will conjour an original score for Lotte Reineger's beautifully creative fairytale inspired by Arabian Nights. The pioneering, painstakingly hand-cut silhouette animation, a labour of love for Reineger, stands as one of the great classics of early feature animation"
