Matt Stokes

Cantata Profana

24 September 2011 - 22 October 2011

Matt Stokes' remarkable video and audio installation takes the form of an amphitheatre of screens presenting a new musical composition, created in collaboration with the leading British composer Orlando Gough and six grindcore vocalists.

Additional Information

Cantata Profana interweaves extreme metal music culture with classical choral traditions, resulting in this unexpected union. The intense sound and body movements of the vocalists together with the backdrop of the outdated GDR radio studio in which the piece was filmed, all contribute to the atmosphere of this unique and immersive work.

Commissioned by Kunsthalle Fridericianum, Germany. Produced by Forma, UK. Supported by De Hallen Haarlem, Netherlands and Arts Council England.
