Expanding Concert (Lisbon 2019-2023)
with Barbara Silva, Margarida Garcia, Regina de Morais, DJ Marfox, Pierre Bal-Blanc..
Galerias Municipais

Expanding Concert (2019-2023) is a four year long concert distributed in time and space through different media: 5 public interventions in 5 different galleries in Lisbon and 5 texts published in the city. The concert was initiated by the invitation of a single artist but it will gradually continue to expand; first by interacting with the audience, then by asking writers to respond to each intervention and finally by inviting other musicians to collaborate on the next interventions. The first concert took pace in December 2019 at Galeria Boavista with a response by Bárbara Silva. The second concert took palace at Pavilhão Branco and continued to explore the notion of call and response in improvisation in an expanded form: each public intervention is a form of call. For this intervention Lisbon musician based Margarida Garcia has been invited to join and respond to the text as a way to open up the process. The critic Ana Teixeira Pinto also has been invited to attend the intervention and to write a text afterwards. Her responses will attempt to contextualize the intervention in relation to the artistic, political and economic situation of Lisbon at the time. Each public intervention works as a proposition exploring our self-perception at a specific given time and place. By contrast the responses will be written outside of these public moments, taking its own time and allowing for reflection on broader issues such as different urban changes taking place in the city. One can think here of structural silences that in this particular case will take months. The interventions will be documented and at the end a publication will be made, formed of documentation of the concerts and the texts. Expanding Concert (2019-2023) is a durational concert attempting to think itself historically while it is happening.

Mattin is an artist, musician and theorist working conceptually with noise and improvisation. Through his practice and writing, he explores performative forms of estrangement as a way to deal with structural alienation. Mattin has exhibited and toured worldwide. He has performed in festivals such as Performa (NYC), No Fun (NYC), Club Transmediale (Berlin), Arika (Glasgow) and lectured and taught in institutions such as Dutch Art Institute, Cal Arts, Bard College, Paris VIII, Princeton University and Goldsmiths College. In 2017 he completed a PhD at the University of the Basque Country under the supervision of the philosopher Ray Brassier. Along with Anthony Iles he edited the book Noise & Capitalism (Kritika/Arteleku 2009). In 2012 CAC Brétigny and Tuamaturgia published Unconsitituted Praxis, a book collecting his writing plus interviews and reviews from performances. Anthony Iles and Mattin are currently in the final stages of editing the volume Abolishing Capitalist Totality: What is To Be Done Under Real Subsumption? (Archive Books). Urbanomic published last year his book Social Dissonance. Mattin is part of the bands Billy Bao and Regler and has over 100 releases in different labels worldwide. He is currently co-hosting with Miguel Prado the podcast Social Discipline. Prado and Mattin are also part of Noise Research Union with Cecile Malaspine, Sonia de Jager, Martina Raponi and Inigo Wilkins. Mattin took part in 2017 in documenta14 in Athens and Kassel.
