Roomful of Teeth

  • The Metropolitan Museum of Art 1000 5th Ave New York, NY, 10028 United States

Roomful of Teeth joins forces with the Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson and the instrumental group American Contemporary Music Ensemble to perform Drone Mass, a new composition inspired by and created for the Met’s magnificent Temple of Dendur. Using texts based on the Coptic Gospel of the Egyptians, this contemporary oratorio fuses the diverse sounds of string quartet, electronics, and vocals to create a memorable experience.
