MATA 2011

DSC02615Due to other commitments this week, I regrettably missed nearly all of this year's MATA Festival, which wrapped up last night at LPR. (Fortunately, the performances were recorded for future broadcast on Q2; Wednesday's performance is posted below.)

I did manage to catch the tail-end of Tuesday's performance by ACME and l'Aresnale, who flew here all the way from Treviso, Italy. I heard the world premiere of London-based Canadian composer Christopher Mayo's Of Trees & Fields & Men, a MATA commission. A bit repetitive and astringent, but something about it got under my skin.

Sorry, David. I'll catch you at the next MATA Interval show. Or, maybe at VOX tomorrow.
