Exploring unique approaches to percussive performance, artist and composer Matthias Schack-Arnott’s work has been presented by Melbourne Festival, La Comete (France), Spor Festival (Denmark), Arts House, Supersense – Festival of the Ecstatic (Arts Centre Melbourne) and beyond.

In conversation with Creative Director and CEO of Melbourne Fringe Simon Abrahams, Matthias will discuss Groundswell—a large-scale sound installation and public sculpture that will directly involve the citizens of Melbourne. Ahead of the work’s 2021 premiere, Matthias and Simon will talk about the inspiration behind it, the process for developing an audience-led experience, and ongoing creative pursuits.

Groundswell is commissioned and co-produced by Melbourne Fringe and Sydney Festival with support from the Naomi Milgrom Foundation. Artists in Conversation is supported by Monash University Centre for Theatre and Performance.

This event is presented in partnership with Melbourne Fringe Festival.
