    Looking forward to playing Cage's masterpiece for piano, tin cans, electric buzzer and radio as part of the Riverside Live series. One of the most hilarious and deeply perverse pieces of music ever written. And it's free!

    Nonzero - Invocation

    7pm

    Richmond Uniting Church, 314 Church St Richmond

    7pm

    I'm excited to be bringing our very well-received Brisbane show down to Melbourne.

    Hinting at purposeful endeavour, recalling ritual and insinuating that which is hidden, Invocation is the debut project from Matthew Horsley (Melbourne) and Cameron Kennedy (Brisbane) as the newly-formed percussion duo Nonzero. Through improvisation and the presentation of new and rarely-performed works by both local and international composers, the boundaries of 'concert music' are explored and extended using elements of theatre, dramaturgy and performance art. Even in instrumentation, few boundaries are observed. The dinner bell, the toy maraca, the awkwardness of not knowing whether to laugh or to nod sagely, trousers augmented with velcro - all are venerable and worthy associates for Nonzero.

    Program:
     
    David Lang - Table of Contents
    Gérard Grisey - Stèle
    Timothy Tate - Minutiae
    Mauricio Kagel - Rrrrrr...
    Matthew Horsley - Panto I & II
    Emmett Williams - The Gift of Tongues
    Annie Hui-Hsin Hsieh - Playing in Tongues
    Erik Griswold - Switch

  1. Dear Matthew,

    My wife and I were at the MRC Salon last night (Tuesday 25the March 2014) to hear you play with Marshall McGuire and the Ludovico’s Band.
    What a great night and congratulations to all concerned.

    Our 9 year old grandson is learning the drums at his Primary School at Mt. Dandenong and is showing great promise.
    We were sorry that he was not with us last night to hear and see your performance on the drums.
    Can you tell us where you will be next performing and where as we are sure that he would be inspired to see and hear you?
    Any chance of another gig with Ludovicio’s Band?
    We look forward to hearing your playing on the Uilleann Pipes after you visit to Ireland.

    Regards,

    Jack Ide

    • Thanks a lot, Jack. Glad you enjoyed it. I don’t actually have too much coming up for the next month or so. The next major project is a contemporary opera for the Next Wave Festival in May but I’m not doing much in the way of conventional percussion for that. I’ll be overseas for the next Ludovico’s gig but I’d certainly love to work with them again. Things will very likely pop up. I’ll keep you posted.

      Thanks again,

      Matt

  2. Hi Matt, I am the Irish Warpiper that you have seen at various festivals along with my piping partner Tracy, we try to see you as much as we can. My work mate Peter Sullivan, you’ll know his face has just told me that your in a bit of a pickle with finances for your debut cd. He told me about a website that is backing you up, also he told me about the various ways or ‘deals’ which people can help.What about a show at my house in Fairfield before I have to sell and move out of my house?? It would be a great fare well. I saw your concert in the city, I think in Feb, didn’t get a chance to tell you how inspiring it was. Anyway get back to me, and cash up front for you!! Regards Rod

    • Hi Rod, good to hear from you! Sounds like you’ve been pretty well informed. I don’t know about in a pickle but yes, I’m taking preorders and contributions to help fund the album. The website is http://www.pozible.com/project/198185
      You’ll see that the performance option is already there for contributions of $150 or more. So yes, a house concert sounds great to me! Thanks and I’ll be in touch very soon.
