Gabriel Prokofiev

Gabriel Prokofiev (Electronics & DJing) + special guests

Composing music that both embraces and challenges western classical traditions, Prokofiev has emerged at the forefront of a new approach to classical music in the UK at the beginning of the 21st century. After completing his musical studies at Birmingham and York Universities and, dissatisfied with the seemingly insular world of contemporary classical music, he developed a parallel music career as a dance, grime, electro and hip hop producer. In 2003, he returned to classical, with the composition of his String Quartet No. 1. His music is often performed in non-traditional venues: East London night-clubs, ware-houses, and electronic music festivals. His Cello Multitracks for solo Cello + 8 multitrack cellos has been performed over 40 times internationally, frequently with live remixing from Gabriel.
