Multi-instrumentalist duo, Gareth Chapman and Barclay Brennan, decided to form ‘Matawan’ in 2013 with the purpose of creating an outlet for their audio work which was unrestrained by genre or pre-conceived rules.
Their intention was to simply create ‘new music’ which appeals to the listener on an almost holistic level.
Using both antiquated and modern forms of music technology, the pair primarily focus on producing highly saturated, evolving textures that posses distinct musicality without relying on obvious melodies.
To achieve this, Matawan’s pieces are usually made from dozens of ‘micro-melodies’ that are derived from short field recordings or played by the artists. These micro-melodies are then densely layered to create textures that are used to make each song.
