Matt Evans

Composer, Percussionist

Brooklyn, United States

Matt Evans is a composer and percussionist producing acoustic and electronic music, collaborative performances, and concept-driven recording projects through an eco-fictional lens. Taking cues from interwoven organic species, entangled online networks, and intersectional thinking, Evans uses drum-driven hypnotic soundscapes and embodied improvisatory performance to question the unknowable and absurd relationships between the human experience, capital-driven consumerism, and ecological systems. To do this, he utilizes drums, Casio keyboards, Moog synthesizers, traditional classical instruments, percussive accessories. and found sounds, often manipulated through careful effects processing and electronic manipulation.
