Get inside the sonic mind of artist and composer, Matthias Schack-Arnott, as he talks Groundswell.
With Simon Abrahams (Creative Director and CEO of Melbourne Fringe) hosting the conversation, audiences will get a chance to hear about the inception of Matthias’ project, Groundswell - a large scale participatory sound installation and public sculpture that the citizens of Melbourne will take part in. Together talk about the inspiration behind the work, developing an audience-led experience and the creative process.
Matthias’ work explores unique approaches to percussive performance and has been presented by Melbourne Festival, La Comete (France), Spor Festival (Denmark), Arts House, Supersense – Festival of the Ecstatic (Arts Centre Melbourne) and beyond.
This conversation was recorded during the Melbourne Fringe Festival in 2020.
