Lina Andonovska (flutes) and Matthew Jacobson's (drum kit) worlds collided in Ireland’s experimental music scene - Andonovska from a contemporary music background and Jacobson from the world of improvised sounds. Their collaboration seeks to blur the boundaries and distinctions between genres. Together they subdivide,recite semiotic quotes, and bring new sounds into the ether.
Independently, both are internationally respected soundmakers in the fields of composed score and improvisation. Collectively, they are embarking upon a quest to commission new work and
improvisational scenarios for their combination of amplified low flutes and drum kit.
So far, SlapBang have presented offerings at New Music Dublin, University College Dublin’s ‘text/sound/performance’, the Association of Irish Composers, in residence at the Dun Laoghaire Lexicon, as featured performers as part of Bottlenote 10: an artist-led annual festival of improvised music in Dublin and at Brilliant Corners in Belfast where they premiered two Arts Council- commissioned pieces by Rachael Lavelle and Colm O’Hara.
Two pieces composed for the duo by Barry O'Halpin (Hox) and Nick Roth (Bátá) featured on Lina's solo album 'A Way A Lone A Last' on Diatribe Records (2020).
