Fault Traces

Fault Traces

Composer and Performer – Matthias Schack Arnott / Speak Percussion
Sound Consultant and Engineer – Tilman Robinson

A new solo work by acclaimed percussive artist Matthias Schack-Arnott. Fault Traces uses subsonic frequencies to trigger vibrational patterns on layers of percussive objects and strewn material. Bells, cymbals, bamboo and glass are used to form shimmering kinetic systems, resulting in extremes of pitch and density. Inspired by our physical and psychological relationship to the subterranean.

The Unconformity acknowledges the palawa people as the original and traditional custodians of lutruwita / Tasmania. We commit to working respectfully to honour their ongoing cultural and spiritual connections to this land.
