Matt Collier: Artist in Residence Outcomes

Matthew graduated from Swansea, UWTSD in the summer of 2017 with a First Class Honours BA Degree in Music Technology. Working predominately with audio field recordings and found sound objects in the creation of sonic compositions, he also employs novel approaches to utilising technology in sound based live performances and installations.

As a result of having worked for many years facilitating rhythm-based activities primarily with children on the Autistic spectrum, his evolving practice explores the territories of interaction, sensory perception and atypical states of consciousness. Current topics of fascination include Acoustic Archaeology and Acoustic Architecture, the Neo-Confucian principle of Li with its focus on dynamic forms in nature, the neurobiological impact of rhythm entrainment, and the intriguing phenomena of Apophenia and Audio Pareidolia.

Matt was the first Sonic Art practitioner to receive a Jane Phillips Award Residency. The residency took place from 01 November – 10 January 2018 and the outcomes can be seen at Mission Gallery’s ‘the […] space’ until 11 February 2018.
