Last year’s inaugural Restoration Festival was a profoundly empowering and unforgettable event. I was proud to be a small part of the underbelly of the two-day blowout and even more proud and excited to hear that Rest Fest would return again this year.
The lovely B3nson folks were kind enough to ask me to perform again this year, at which point I began to think about putting something very special together for this year’s event.
So what does Matthew do when Matthew considers putting together some sort of musical group to play music at Restoration Festival 2011?
Matthew assembles a 12+ person ensemble.
While playing alone is all well and good, I’ve had an urge to collaborate on music with other people lately. What better way to do so than to find some folks willing and able to work on music together for a few months?
Two rules for this show –
1. No looping.
2. No electronic instruments.
For this special one-time-only performance, the Undone Ensemble will perform a song or two from each of my full-length records, some old stuff and a few newer things. It’s been a real treat to hear my ideas go from budget MIDI keyboard demos to living, breathing instrument parts.
Can’t wait for you to hear it!
See you there?
