Matthew Schoen Video CA 2015


Vehicles CA 9’30

The work of Montreal artist and composer Matthew Schoen extends towards various media such as video, installation, and electroacoustic music. A desire to renew audience experience while blurring the lines between music, sound art and visual arts has accompanied his recent creative process.

Vehicles is video and sound work in which an imagined structure is revealed from its smallest components to the larger and more complex entities they compose. The accompanying music and sound reinforce a narrative ranging from a place of intimacy to a growing vastness, while echoing the visual content of the video. This work is loosely inspired from the essay Vehicles written by Italian-Austrian cyberneticist Valentino Braitenberg.
