3rd December at the Green Door Store: Matawan / Map71 / Noteherder and McCloud

Weirdo electronics and ecstatic experimentalism

Melody within texture

Matawan is Gareth Chapman and Barclay Brennan.
Specifically choosing to use electric guitar and voice as their primary mediums, Matawan seek to portray an aural journey that often treads a fine line between brooding density and compelling ethereality. The primary ideas raised by their compositions relate to the role that melody has within texture and how this relates to the listener.

Poetry, drums, synths

A collaboration between poet and artist Lisa Jayne and drummer Andy Pyne (Kellar, Medicine & Duty, Black Neck Band of the Common Loon, West Hill Blast Quartet).

Noteherder & McCloud
Grinding noises and free flying sax

Geoff Reader on electronics and Chris Parfitt on Soprano sax, with elements of field recordings, human voices, plenty of noise, pulses, washes and free flowing sax. Noteherder & McCloud have played at The De La Warr pavilion and you local noise bunker and felt at home in both.
The Sound Projector said “the excellent Brighton duo who use saxophone and live electronics to make records that are always compelling and unusual, extemporising compulsively in the long-form way with gloriously generous outpourings of abstract jazz-noise.”
Their latest release is Recent Observations and they may well have physical files on the night.
