A dynamic intervention into the aural airspace of the Mayday of 2022 through the manipulation of filtered noise and human vocal intervention made and processed live through the Ripley, an instrument designed on the alchemical discoveries made by George Ripley in the 15th century. Noise, colours, lightning, square waves and clocks, vomited wings and feathers mashed through salt, fed by mercury to feed the final outcome.

Kaffe Matthews is a pioneering music maker who works live with space, data, things, and place to make new electroacoustic composition. Site, accessibility and the physical experience of this music for the maker and listener has always been central to her approach and so she has also invented some unique interfaces – the sonic armchair, the sonic bed and a variety of sonic bikes which enable new paths into composition for makers and ways in to unfamiliar sound and music for wide ranging audiences.

Since 1995 Matthews has performed and taught worldwide, receiving awards such as the NESTA Dreamtime Fellowship; Honorary Professor of Music, Shanghai Music Conservatory; a Scottish BAFTA with Mandy McIntosh & Zeena Parkins; Distinction Prix Ars Electronica Sonic Bed_London and Honorary mention for cd cécile. She is the first woman to have received the Edgar Varèse guest professorship, computer music, TU Berlin. Kaffe has also been releasing solo works on Annette Works since 1996.
