Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble Of Shadows is the (group?/solo?) proyect of multi-intrumentalist Anna-Varney Cantodea. Formed in Germany in 1989 that over the years have evolved in their sound classical, baroque, medieval, gothic and even electronic music (and lately in aesthetic because beagan with a completly androgeny style till today closer to the feminine) have known keep their unique and own sound.
Basing their music, poetry and visual appearance (their "Sacred Trinity") giving emphasis in individual expresion of pain, isolation, depresion, love, unlove and touch suicides. The holistic concept best described by him/herself as "introverted exhibitionism" ritualistic/ Jungian art is not necessarily rooted in the grounds of a commonly accepted sense of aesthetics (giving to his/her work its serious and most unique character)

Little is know about the mind behind Anna, who consider her/himself as the transgendered and utterly beautiful Goddess (and likewise tragically Butoh-esque creature) (a gothic housewife and supermodel); usually not give many interviews, unless someone you trust to ensure her/his "anonymity"; and that notwithstanding the passage of time and unfortunately for us as fans of her/his art, she/he refuses to perform her/his work on live in front of humans.
