Tracking The Odds: Kaffe Matthews (Audio)
Violinist, electronic musician, and composer Kaffe Matthews in a solo performance recorded at Roulette on 13 December 1997. Beyond the violin, Matthews has utilized theremin, wild salmon, star maps, NASA scientists, sharks, children, solo walks, and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra for works presented in concert halls, city streets, basement clubs, galleries, theatres, living rooms, empty shops, and for the human body. Matthews has also engineered unique interfaces such as the sonic armchair, the sonic bed, and the sonic bike. Other projects include the collectives Music for Bodies (2006) and The Bicrophonic Research Institute (2014) where ideas and techniques are developed within a pool of coders and artists using shared and open source approaches.
