PRESENTED BY THE SUBSTATION AS PART OF FINDING OUR VOICE FESTIVAL
Matthias Schack-Arnott and collaborators
In the world premiere of Tethering, Matthias Schack-Arnott returns to The Substation to create a vast and intricate world of interconnected sound. Using a range of repurposed and recycled materials, Matthias creates a musical world in which quivering threads of sound populate the performance space, transferring energy through a thrumming network of manmade and organic materials.
Building upon his research into the physicalisation of sound through kinetic systems, Matthias has created an ambitious work in which massed sounding objects chatter in playful relationships to each other.
Driven by Matthias’ propulsive percussive playing, and made in collaboration with a team of leading designers, Tethering is a visceral, trashy and fun exploration of the materiality of sound.
