Matt Stokes: Cantata Profana

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. 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 The intense sound and body movements of the vocalists together with the backdrop of the outdated GDR radio studio in which the piece was filmed, all contribute to the atmosphere of this unique and immersive work.
