On golden hares (2018)
On golden hares is a new compositional adventure for Matthews where she has been playing and recording the organ in the Walloner church, Magdeburg whilst in residence in this extraordinary city. After two periods of assault that completely destroyed it, a wide range of architecture from early Gothic to socialist to present day now stands, providing homes and spaces across a small area to diverse and visible communities of all ages. Tourists and the river Elbe river add to the mix and Matthews is mapping her experiments to the different streets, subliminally responding to the shifting contexts, creating a composition that contrasts, conflicts and harmonises as it floats and bounces from the sonic bike you can come ride through the city. Look up. You might also hear a hidden space.
The special addition to On golden hares is that the kunstmuseum are making five new sonic bikes that will remain in Magdeburg for new works to be made next year. Keep in touch.

Kunstmuseum Magdeburg presents these different themes concerning art and music by way of numerous examples from the fields of sculpture, installation and video in a major survey exhibition.
