Buy Matt Davignon's Soft Wet Fish and get Bwoo at an additional $4.00 off Buy Together Today: $22
Matt Davignon has developed a unique form of improvisation over the last 10 years, focusing on textures, arrhythmic patterns and musical imperfections. Creating music that is at once elemental and intricately ambient, he explores the outer dimensions of experimentation, exploring the dynamic relationship between chaos, order, and indeterminism.
His project, “Bwoo”, evokes biology, and the mystery of elemental structure in nature and in sound. Using a drum machine as his singular sound source, he warps, bends, and multiplies the beats, creating sound-scapes as diverse and ambient as they are complex and organically beautiful.

Davignon coaxes a shifting, kaleidoscopic ecosystem from his chosen black box.” - Chris Sharp, The WIRE
