I feel the music… as clear as a mountain path. Art inspired by Art. Simplicity. Simplicity brings forth such strong emotion. Contemporary Art makes a return to its primitive origins. However in reality it is not a ..return..… but a ..renewal.., a new beginning, a new way of seeing things which this new knowledge has enabled. Death signals no end but is necessary to allow for new growth and regeneration. Indeed Art looks back to its source, in order to be reborn with renewed creativity. Simplicity of form..... primitive realization...Naïve construction...but always present and most vital is the intensity of emotion. Tranquil music to calm our anxious beings. Destruction and reconstruction. Art needs…both simplicity and complexity. Now… Art inspires rebirth.” F. Mompou (1893- 1987)

This research project is inspired by the wonderful music and philosophy of the Catalan composer Frederic Mompou. This exploration has led to the formation of the group Matisos, which formally emerged in September of 2007. Matisos takes as a starting point the simplicity of Mompou..s melodies and chords, which are used as a springboard to push the group into exploring new sonic terrain. As Matisos we desire to experience a musical world, one full of surprises, which places an emphasis on clear communication and offers us a freedom which we believe to be fundamental and vital in our music making. Matisos seeks not to reinterpret or perform Mompou..s existing repertoire. We take inspiration from his ideas and sound world and with that we build our own unique sound and repertoire. “... it is not a ..return..… but a ..renewal..." Matisos is in a constant state of change, of growth and development. We believe that this is essential for the vitality and energy of our music. We invite listeners to join us on this new and inspiring journey and we seek and hope to move them…like this music has moved us.
