« [...]Mattin attacks everything worth hating in contemporary improvised, noise and ‘experimental’ music: everything precious, contemplative, or non-committal. A Mattin performance is not likely to offer ’satisfaction’ to its prospective audience; the ‘experimental’ music fanboys are likely to be vexed not only by the sheer unpleasantness of the performance itself, but also by its lack of innovation, its refusal of novelty.
Not that beauty is foreign to Mattin’s work. It’s just that the beauty inherent in his work refuses to be aesthetic, refuses to form the pleasant background to our complicity in our own self-alienation. It is a beauty as strange and disorienting as anything we encounter in the world.[...] », excerpt of the introduction by Alexander Locascio
« Unconstituted Praxis contains texts, interviews and responses to performances in wich Mattin has been involved, made between 2002 and 2010. Prior to this book’s production the different nature, means of publication and languages of these texts have made access to them somewhat difficult. Here we collect them together for readers to facilitate acces and make connections between materials which is not necessarily always easy or coherent. Readers can explore the contradictions and problems themselves, opening the texts to critical thinking in a landscape in wich today people seem preoccupied by simply confirming their own sense of aesthetics through refinement and innovation », by Taumaturgia.
