|Matt Davignon has developed a unique form of improvisation over the last 10 years, focusing on textures, arrhythmic patterns and musical imperfections.
Creating music that is at once elemental and intricately ambient, he explores the outer dimensions of experimentation, exploring the dynamic relationship between chaos, order, and indeterminism.
His latest project, “Bwoo”, evokes biology, and the mystery of elemental structure in nature and in sound. Using a drum machine as his singular sound source, he warps, bends, and multiplies the beats, creating sound-scapes as diverse and ambient as they are complex and organically beautiful.
“His surreptitiously evolving pieces float forth free from sampler grids and timecodes, twisting and turning through untrammelled space…Amazingly, this spartan approach yields expansive, multi-hued results - this is no kick/snare/hi-hat desert. Davignon coaxes a shifting, kaleidoscopic ecosystem from his chosen black box.”
