Matthew WrightMusic at the edge of collapse – Matthew Wright – Compact Disc

So much more than just a CD! Includes detailed booklet with: liner notes by Christopher Fox; a comprehensive Q&A with the composer; photographs; multiple score samples and biographies.

Matthew Wright (1977) is a composer, improviser and sound artist working at the edges of concert and club culture. “Music at the edge of collapse” weaves together asymmetric structures and detuned melodies with splintered beats and totemic forms in a set of works where musical time and classical notation are constantly fragmented and re-imagined.
