Past Dates

Matthew Goodheart from San Francisco is a very multifaceted artist. As a pianist, composer, sound artist and improviser he is as familiar with avant-garde music as he is with Jazz. He is as at home with free improvisation within open forms as he is with composing complex musical structures. He works with acoustic instruments and electronics, and he experiments with the relationship between individual play and joint improvisation and the musical momentum of the ever new sonic features that emerge. MaerzMusik 2014 presents recent spatially referenced compositions by the composer, who is currently a fellow at the American Academy in Berlin. In this duo performance, Matthew Goodheart’s piano and George Cremaschi’s sonorous double bass interact with computer controlled metal percussion impulses.
