Spectre-like sound manipulations reinforce this epic neo-classical trawl through the pumping hearts of Matthias and Auborn, aided, in part, by a flawed robot whose percussive drive occasionally strays from its programming, creating unpredictable & visceral rhythms that charm with every blow of its mechanical hammer.

Reminiscent of Sun Yuan and Peng Yu’s ‘Can’t Help Myself’ - an installation in which a robotic arm cleans up its leaking oil-blood, gradually losing power until it’s no longer able to mop up the crimson fluid emanating from its body – ‘Ghost Notes’ is an intriguing spectacle that straddles stringed symphonic highs with industrial cadences, forcing us to face the reflection of our own fractured humanity in the sprawling sonic scree.

Auborn and Matthias, along with their synthetic counterpart, have crafted something poignant, powerful, discombobulating, and, at times, wondrously overwhelming. This apparition shows great spirit.

FOR FANS OF: Trent Reznor & Attic Ross / John Cage / Olafur Arnalds / Alice Coltrane / Sun Yuan & Peng Yu
