Broken Ghost Consort

Broken Ghost Consort presents works that live in a hybrid world of composition, free improvisation and sound installation. The group is based on the use of the "re-embodied sound" technique, in which gongs, cymbals and other resonant instruments are activated by small transducers attached to their surfaces and controlled by computer, making them sound autonomous. Alongside these 'ghost instruments', live performers interact with written, structured and spontaneously improvised materials in an evolving series of works that explore the nature of sound, performance, materiality and space.

Matthew Goodheart – electronics and transducer-activated metal percussion
Georg Wissell – clarinet and alto saxophone
George Cremaschi – amplified and unamplified contrabass
