Everywhen

Matthias Schack-Arnott

Presented in association with The SUBSTATION

Sonically and visually exquisite.

THE GUARDIAN
A lone performer is surrounded by dozens of objects in perpetual motion.

From the tiny to the massive, this whirlpool of floating sounds forms a percussive swarm of gongs and chimes, while concentric circles of organic matter accumulate below. This teeming turbulence gives rise to a dizzying aural experience revealing the power of cyclic motion in sound.

Melbourne-based percussive artist Matthias Schack-Arnott has carved out a unique space in contemporary music-making, developing entirely new instrumental set-ups and collaborating with thinkers from fields as diverse as architecture and engineering. Here he has worked with designer Keith Tucker of Megafun to create an immersive rotational lighting system to make his latest work even more otherworldly. A constantly shifting canopy of sound evoking ritual geometries, subatomic motion and planetary orbits, Everywhen is music from outside of time.
