Matt Papich at the Market Hotel, circa 2008.
Ecstatic Sunshine has been on the experimental music radar for years, beeping and blipping and moving in and out of focus and frequency all the while. Last winter I sat down with Matt Papich and he said he was interested in “sound’s ability to sculpt space” and “affect the environment” where music is being played. Well, this Friday night at the Rose Quartz x MME Unofficial CMJ Showcase we can all find out exactly what happens when Papich sculpts space and alters environments with sound.
Papich tours Europe quite frequently and sent over a recording of the song “Faceplant,” recorded live in Katowice, Poland earlier this year. Check it out in ANTICIPATION.
