Max Baillie & Vahakn Matossian

Artists: Max Baillie, Vahakn Matossian

Series: Festival of New, Residencies

Ideas explored: developing new work, extended recording techniques, sound design

Electric duo Max Baillie & Vahakn Matossian dance the line between left-field, experimental music and music rooted in pop-culture in a way that creates a powerful explorational sound journey but a tangible musical concert experience for the listener.

They are using their Residency to develop their material and explore new technology and techniques, with analog and organic sound sources including viola, percussion, and touch-sensitive electronic sound-manipulation hardware. Despite only being two people their sound requires a larger space, ‘imagine paper rustling but the size of an oak tree’.
