2010 MATA Festival Commission




MATA presents the world premiere of UK composer 2010 Commissionee Matthew Wright’s Totem for Gobi-New York, an interactive audio/video installation. Erosion, non-linear networks, the idea of music ‘at the edge of collapse’ and the dialogue between ‘stillness’ and ‘speed’ are recurrent themes in Wright’s hybrid electronica. A keen ear for timbre and architectural beats underlie his experimentation. He has collaborated with artists as diverse as Evan Parker, Ensemble Klang, and The Percussion Group of Hague, and worked in venues such as Abbey Road studios and Tate Modern (London), De Ijsbreker (Amsterdam) and Bunkier Stzuki (Krakow).
