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?’
On the weekend we go to Newcastle for a Disembraining Machine showcase as part of Sound Summit.

STAG - get used to it 7” (Disembraining)
Holy SHIIIIITTTT. Witch spells sung as girl group hits through a lens of stiff minimalism. “Goin Out” is the hiT of the century. Psychedelic key flourishes, bedroom dance drums, vocals that run the gamut from bored drones to torch song sing alongs to shrill scream outs, the bass keeping it groovy. It’s like the best parts of Jefferson Airplane, Kleenex, and the Slits. Seriously, blowing my mind. (MM)
