Symbiont Mathew Adkins

Symbiont is a work that plays with the notion of balancing opposites. The most obvious is the balance between a more acousmatic way of thinking and the sound world of drum’n’bass. There are also other oppositions taking place within the work between speed, dynamics, sound processes and the way sonic material is treated in different contexts. The work is very much inspired by the novels of William Gibson and the art works of H.G. Giger.

commissioned by the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, INA-GRM and the Sonic Arts Network of Great Britain.
