Matt is a rare instrument proficient, mastering the experimental Electronic Valve Instrument developed by AKAI Corporation; the Hang, a metal-alloyed instrument developed in this century by Swiss inventors Felix Rohner and Sabina Sharer, played with the hands to create stunningly warm and ethereal sounds that are simultaneously rhythmic and melodic; and the related Gubal. He also utilizes looping pedals, a variety of unusual chimes, guitar and voice.
At the West Bloomfield UCC event (Wednesday, March 29th at 7 pm) Matt will also project his beautiful nature videos on an entire wall of the sanctuary behind him to create a fully immersive multi-media experience.
“I was privileged to catch Matt in a private house concert,” said Pastor Corey Keyes. “I was transported by his performance, and then was stunned when he agreed to an expanded multi-media performance in our beautiful sanctuary in West Bloomfield. This will be an incredible evening!”
