New Music Video – Matt Clark Three

Here’s the first tune from my new Jazztronica project, Matt Clark Three.

I’ve been influenced recently by a lot of the “Nu Jazz” music coming out of London and New York – artists like Onyx Collective and Shabaka Hutchings, and wanted to get back to writing some electronic type tunes with loops and lo-fi samples.

Stay tuned for more – I’m planning a full EP release via Bandcamp, plus more videos, and who knows, maybe even a few live dates…

Phonoscene Presents: THX 1138 LIVE FILM SCORE at Komedia, Brighton

“Sometime in the future in a state controlled society, conformity and homogeneity are the rule; a time when people have designations instead of names. A man, THX 1138, and a woman, LUH 3417, rebel against their rigidly controlled society…”

Matt Clark, Brighton based experimental guitarist and composer, performs an improvised live score to the film, interweaving with and adding to Lalo Schiffrin’s sparse original soundtrack.

Support from Cinerama [Stripped Back 3-Piece Format]:

In 1997… [David] Gedge (The Wedding Present) started work on a new project called Cinerama in which he indulged his love of film music from John Barry to Ennio Morricone via Serge Gainsbourg, Blaxploitation, easy listening and surf music!

THIS EVENT WILL TAKE PLACE IN OUR MAIN SPACE – KOMEDIA DOWNSTAIRS

UNRESERVED CABARET SEATING

AGES 14+ (UNDER 16s MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY AN ADULT)

Matt Clark; Three

Matt Clark; Three is a new, rhythm based jazz project I’m starting. The music takes influence from the burgeoning new jazz scene on both sides of the Atlantic, but also throws a nod to influences as diverse as Krautrock, funk and hip-hop.

It’s a convergence ideas inspired by all the new music I’ve heard over the last couple of years, and aims to be more than just a gigging band. Think events, happenings, art installations, film scores…

It’s early days, but stay tuned for more…

Caaw “Strange Pictures” – Reactions

“Strippers, Down & Outs, & Other Ne’er-Do-Wells”

[Review in PluggedIn Brighton, published September 26, 2019 by Chris Hibberd]

Strange Pictures? What does it mean? Half remembered memories of what you thought you saw. Did you? The new release from Caaw opens a window into a world of bourbon-soaked memories with jazz-inflected avant-garde music playing and burbling in the background. Captain Beefheart and Tom Waits are having a tussle over a perfume filled top hat whilst Dr John watches on from the bayou distractedly.
