Last night, some of our SOTC choir members took to the stage of the Concorde 2 to perform with the Nordic Giants! They had been working on the performance as part of a special project for this term, called ‘Choir Extra’.
SOTC were thrilled to be invited to sing with the Giants, as those who have seen their live show will attest, it is a visceral experience that goes beyond the normal descriptors. Each mind-blowing performance involves a chosen few short films, which are soundtracked live with atmospheric soundscapes. The duo create an audio-visual experience with bowed guitar, a piano that is both haunting and rousing, and climactic and thunderous drums.
Our guys had to get into the spirit of things by covering themselves in grey paint (no joke!) and I have it on good authority that some choir members are still – a day later – finding errant flecks of grey about their person!
