Material Studies, playfull collective explorations of the sound within matter.
Founded in 2012 by Matthias Kispert, Blanca Regina and Andrew Riley the project seeks to open experimental artforms to anyone who wishes to participate in the ensemble. Improvised sonic exploration of various materials and objects, whether by actively working with the objects, passively absorbing the interactions of others or by expressing a response to the sonic exploration through visual or written acts.
No expertise or previous experience is required. The sessions focuses on the communicative potential
of collective improvisation, where every participant is engaged to listen and react to everything that is happening around, where every gesture has an influence on everything else.
