Matthias Schack-Arnott’s Tethering creates a vast and intricate world of interconnected sound. Using a range of repurposed and recycled materials, Matthias creates a musical world in which quivering threads of sound populate the performance space, transferring energy through a thrumming network of man-made and organic materials.

Building upon his research into the physicalisation of sound through kinetic systems, Matthias has created an ambitious work in which massed sounding objects chatter in playful relationships to each other.

Driven by Matthias’ propulsive percussive playing, and made in collaboration with a team of leading designers, Tethering is a visceral, trashy and fun exploration of the materiality of sound.

Premiere: The Substation, April 2023. Commissioned by The Substation, Finding Our Voice and The Unconformity.
