Press

"Inspired by a trek through the Gobi Desert [..] the piece evoked a wind-swept, spirit-haunted expanse"

New York Times

(Review of 'Totem for Gobi-New York' @ Le Poisson Rouge, NYC)

"Ensemble Offspring were both creators and destroyers in this concert of new works by sonic inventors from around the world. Breakdown, by British composer Matthew Wright, was a brief, intense overture"

Sydney Morning Herald

(Review of 'Breakdown' @ The Sydney Opera House)

 

“Evan Parker and Matthew Wright’s intriguing collaboration edits layers of live performance into a shimmering mist of undulating and unbroken sonic textures [...] the result enthrals and soothes in equal measure.”

The Financial Times

(Review of 'Trance Map', released on the psi label)
