Matthew Wright

born in 1977, Norwich, UK, Matt Wright works as a composer, improviser and sound artist at the edges of concert and club culture, his output stretching from scores for early music ensembles and contemporary chamber groups to digital improvisation, experimental hip hop and turntablism, website installations, and large events combining DJs, new music performers and digital media. As a performer and researcher he works with turntables, laptops and surround sound installations to create post-DJ, multichannel music that embraces hip hop, avant garde and ‘free’ traditions. He works closely with Evan Parker (including the CD ‘Trance Map’ and duo, trio and ensemble performances in New York, London and Paris) with Ensemble Klang in The Hague (including the CD ‘Music at the Edge of Collapse’), with Bl!ndman and Champ D’Action in Brussels; with The Six Tones in Malmo, Sweden and Hanoi, Vietnam; with Ensemble Offspring in Sydney, and with his own ensemble Splinter Cell, a flexible collective of musicians based in London and Canterbury who work with the connections between notation, technology and improvisation.
