The Basque anarchist artist Mattin has spent the last decade establishing a highly distinctive practice in noise and ‘free’ improvisational music. His work pays homage to the histories of these genres, while simultaneously undertaking a provocative and often humorous interrogation of the rules and standards to which they adhere—the proposed anti-sociality of noise, the implicit ‘freedom’ in improvisation. Mattin considers this testing to be a process of ‘distributing vulnerability’ across the core assumptions made by audiences and performers alike.
Disembraining are bringing Mattin to Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane in May, to stage a series of non-concerts, concerts, silences, conversations, and other activities in response to the question ‘What isn’t music?’
