on screen/off screen Kaffe Matthews and Lynette Quek
on-screen/off-screen showcases the work of two pioneering audio-visual artists and electroacoustic composers. Kaffe Matthews works with everything from violins and theremins to sharks and star maps, collaborating with NASA scientists, children, and even other musicians. She performs and composes with acoustic instruments, electronics and film, and is the inventor of unique interfaces: the sonic armchair, the sonic bed and the sonic bike. Lynette Quek’s new piece on-screen/off-screen, a Lyons Celebration Award commission, explores concepts of sound in film – especially ‘Foley’: the post-production addition of sound to film – within live performance.
