Matt Davis has been active in improvised music since the mid 90’s, playing throughout Europe and Japan in many different collaborations and small and large group ensembles including Zeitkratzer and La Sospechosa dance company.
From 2003 he has directed ‘Field’ - a live art/performance project, which investigates Space and has collaborated with geographer Doreen Massey, author of For Space.
His sound/music work continues to include acoustic improvisation (trumpet and preparations) which could be described as textural, sound based pieces. Along side this is an electromagnetic set up: performance based improvisations which use electromagnetic fields from custom-built cracked electrical devices and field recordings of electromagnetic residue and interference, as well as drawing on the immediate situation/space of the performance. These elements are explored as spatial, acoustic phenomena and for their potential as organic and/or feral musical elements.
