Matt Davignon has developed a unique form of improvisation over the last 10 years, focusing on textures, arrhythmic patterns and musical imperfections. Combining acoustic and electronic elements, he attempts to create dynamic, biological music from seemingly limited source material. Since early 2004, he's been working primarily with drum machine, using several effects and sampling devices to enable it to create drones, gurgles and crackling textures. He also plays turntable, prepared guitar, household objects and a plethora of toy instruments.

Matt also organizes several musical events in the San Francisco Bay Area, including the Found Objects Festival, where artists must create music from audience-submitted objects.
Do you play live?
I play often in San Francisco and Oakland, both solo and in improvised groups.
Equipment used:
The drum machine is a Boss Dr-660, with a "tablecore" setup of various pedals. No laptops or anything.
