Matthew Lee Knowles - Short Biography

composer -- pianist -- teacher -- performer -- poet -- artist -- writer -- events organiser (happenings)

Matthew Lee Knowles graduated from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 2008 and has written many theatre scores and happenings, over 100 poems, around 500 musical compositions (from solo to orchestral), almost 2000 word-events and has being increasingly become involved in performance art and booklet making (Ballet (2009), Waiting For Godot (2008-10))

He has organised many substantial happenings since his first "Thank you MR. C." in July 2007. "The Nothing and the Nothingness" involved 150 people over six spaces at the Louise T Blouin Foundation in 2008 lasting three hours and taking eight months to write and organise. "Around This House" took place with over 70 performers in Shoreditch Library in 2009. "For the Birds" (2008) a collaboration with Neil Luck was a spoken word event in a cemetery.

Text is extremely important in his work and conceptual poetry pieces include SEVEN - the first seven syllables of every sentence extracted from a London newspaper, Verlaine where all words ending -ing were taken from 170 translated poems by Verlaine and Voices: 168 poems using only one, two, three and four letter words.

As a pianist Matthew has performed Stockhausen’s Goldstaub for the BBC/SAN (which required him to live without food, thought or sleep for four days and improvise at the piano for five minutes), Kondo's Metaphonesis and his own composition in a video performance by Brandon Labelle (Cloudy) in Wilton's Music Hall, London.

Highlights in 2009 included, curating a happening in a library (Around This House), performing solo for the BMIC music mart (Solo For Person), improvising at the piano to over 1000 people in India, performing as a musician in a dance festival in Spain and forming a new spokenwordmusic trio KLK. He was performer/composer in residence for Notations and The Voice and Nothing More, both curated by Sam Belinfante/Neil Luck and spent two weeks writing and performing in Lithuania and headlined a festival in Sardinia with Neil, presenting an eighty minute set for Miniere Sonore.

For eight months last year Matthew opened his house to artists, composers and musicians once a month for SNIFF (Sunday Night Is Frolics Fun) to perform, drink and share ideas.

INTO magazine (Sound and Music) recently published an article by Matthew entitled “How To Make Things Happen” which discusses recent projects and how they were made possible and will also soon be publishing an interview Matthew made with Geoff Smith.

sixty_six_events - a collaboration with Andy Ingamells was a global performance project following the success of six_events in 2008 which was performed in 29 countries over six days. It took place over a 24 hour period on the 21st January 2010.

Matthew has recently being working with an architect to produce a piece of substantial public art in Marylebone, using Matthew's text and recently had a performance in Hong Kong by Violist William Lane.

Matthew lives and works in East London and teaches Piano across London.
