Kaffe Matthews
Live Performance

Kaffe has been making and performing new music around the world for the past fifteen years via all kinds of digital gadgetry and she has never played two pieces exactly alike, each recording is from a particular place, with a particular audience, at a particular time of day, after a certain kind of journey. Hiding microphones outside in the street or attaching them to everything short of lightning rods, feeding her show with live sounds that come from inside and outside the playing site. The drone of an idle car engine, the chopping of a distant helicopter, whatever siren or chirp she tunes into and samples during the performance becomes material for her public's sonic environs. She works in the moment. Taking her time, drawing out every creak, patiently layering every murmur.

Recently she has collaborated with Charles Hayward, Panasonic, Thomas Koner, Kingsuk Biswas (Bedouin Ascent), artist Mandy McIntosh, guit-artist John Bissett and is currently working on a desert uplink with Australian wire music merchant Alan Lamb.

Workshop
13th Nov - Centre for Contemporary Art
Kaffe will run a workshop exploring live sampling and processing techniques using LiSa, a dead easy piece of potentially super powerful software running on PowerMacs. Aimed at those already working with sound in some way, DJs, artists, filmmakers, musicians, teachers and sculptors. Bring along any sound making gadgets you might already have.
Minimum age 16.
