Stream Arca's live soundtrack to Hood By Air's fashion show, featuring bleating sheep and Björk

The Xen producer unveils a specially commissioned mix.

Last night Arca performed a live soundtrack to Hood By Air’s show at the Pitti Uomo 87 fashion event in Florence, Italy.

The 17-minute set contains 11 tracks of Arca’s signature production pyrotechnics, blending industrial racket and celestial synths with bleating sheep and samples of Robert Wyatt and his new pal Björk (whose forthcoming album he partly produced).

The mix was mastered by Matt Colton at Alchemy, according to Soundcloud, and the artwork is by Arca’s regular collaborator Jesse Kanda. Stream it below and see the tracklist underneath.
