Avant Muzak - Dr Matthew Shlomowitz

Dr Matthew Shlomowitz has released a new record as part of his ongoing 'Popular Contexts' project, a series of concert pieces that combine samples and field recordings with instrumental music to investigate everyday and popular culture.

Matthew's new record Avant Muzak (now available from independent label 'all that dust') builds on his previous work to bring everyday soundscapes into the concert hall.

He says "I like the idea of taking material that many might regard as banal and trying to find new possibilities for it. It’s not a subversive act, but simply ennobling a music that is often dismissed. And it also reflects my belief that composition is not so much about creating musical material as what you do with it."
