Matt Rogers Of the wonderful Nature of Air (2018)
In October 2018, English Heritage and artist Jeremy Deller marked 100 years since Stonehenge was donated to the nation with a day of celebrations at the ancient stones.
As part of the celebrations, we gave the world premiere of a new commission by composer Matt Rogers within Stonehenge’s hallowed stone circle. Commissioned by English Heritage, the piece is a collaboration between Jeremy Deller, Matt Rogers, and the London Sinfonietta. The work for brass and percussion was performed at intervals throughout the day.
In this video release we're very pleased to share a 360-degree video of the performance with spatial audio. The best way to experience the very special recording is with your phone and a pair of headphones. Get up close to the historic site by moving your phone around as you explore Stonehenge and follow the sound.
Commissioned by English Heritage. Filmed and recorded by Daniel Halford and Chris Carvalho for Sound Intermedia.
