aboutHi. I like to find new unconventional ways to think about and produce music. Lately, my instruments have been pre-recorded media (records, CD's, live broadcasts). I also use samplers, bass, casio keyboards, altered acoustic guitar, toys/objects, my voice, and lots of other sound-makers I can find. While I don't go out of my way to be "weird" anymore, I try to make music that is beautiful in completely new ways.

  Besides the fact that the title of this song is pleasantly disgusting, Mr. Davignon's bizarre material never ceases to amaze me...especially since I saw him loop live in Santa Cruz for Y24K. This song is minimalist in terms of tone diversity, but full of personality. Toward the end, I like the pauses and re-starts. Might this song be the sound of an alien spaceship with a bad muffler or ignition problem? :)
3 Location Volume 1
stream trackload mp3   The Truth is Marching On
San Francisco, California, USA
Recorded and arranged by Matt Davignon. Protestors for KPFA recorded at the Embarcadero Center in San Franisco. A very simple
additive process involving a short fragment of the main loop.
4 Location Volume 1
stream trackload mp3   Friction
San Francisco, California, USA
The screeching noise is a MUNI
escalator at half speed. There are also basketball players in Delores Park, a farmers market at the Embarcadero,
and traffic/construction sounds from around the city.
