Matthias Schack-Arnott: Anicca

The Breakfast Spread : State of the Art  for Tuesday 25 October 2016, 8:30am

Acclaimed percussive artist, Matthias Schack-Arnott, returns to Arts House with a new work that aurally and kinetically explores cycles, orbits and the perception of time.

Hypnotic and dreamlike, Anicca features a variable-speed rotating instrument created with engineer Richard Allen, augmented by a rotational lighting system and multi-channel audio.

Anicca – meaning ‘impermanence’ – is inspired by the relationship between the cyclic and the transcendental in Hindu and Buddhist thought. Through interlocking musical gestures, performers Schack-Arnott and Eugene Ughetti play the instrument’s spinning, textured surface, creating timbral cannons, mechanical phasing effects and microtonal pitch cycles. The result is a shimmering reflection on impermanence, recurrence and perpetual motion. Dynamic, virtuosic and multisensory, Anicca is a percussion adventure with a musical vocabulary like nothing you’ve heard before.
