The Utopia EP is Mira Calix's first release on Warp in a decade. A decade in which mixed media installation and exhibition work, with a focus on classical instrumentation, has been the main focus of her practice. Her most recent project was a sound installation that featured an ambitious choral work, performance artists and a unique speaker diffusion system. Part of Beyond the Deepening shadow at the Tower of London, it ran from 4-11 November and saw over 300,000 visitors, creating an international media storm. The basis for the new EP title and lead track - rightclick - was Utopia, a Random Acts film written and directed by internationally acclaimed novelist Adam Thirwell. In the short film starring Lily Cole and Lily McMenamy, a girl tries to set up a commune in a tiny apartment and finds her ideals of utopian living tested and expanded as an alternate version of Calix's fragmented track acts as the bedrock throughout.
