Matt Davis has been active in improvised music since the mid 90’s, playing throughout Europe and Japan in many different collaborations and small and large group ensembles including Zeitkratzer and La Sospechosa dance company.

From 2003-2008 he directed ‘Field’ - a live art/performance project, which investigated notions of space and collaborated with geographer Doreen Massey, author of For Space.

His sound/music work continues to include acoustic improvisation (trumpet and preparations) along side an electromagnetic set up: performance based improvisations that use custom-built cracked electrical devices, often with a visual element, to create electromagnetic fields that are rendered into sound, drawing on the immediate situation/space of the performance. These elements are explored as spatial and material phenomena and for their dubious potential as organic and/or feral musical elements.
