From What to Where is an original composition from musician and artist Matt Walker. In the program at TEDxOmaha 2018 this beautiful piece followed Tim Guthrie’s talk, and the synergy between the two performances was incredible – in fact it was tangible. We at the TEDxOmaha team recommend that you watch Tim’s talk, An Artist’s Journey Through Love and Loss, then watch and listen to Matt. We think (hope, have 98% confidence) that you will agree for us that this is how the mindfulness meditation core of this music is best appreciated.
In this original composition, musician Matt Walker utilizes an array of guitar effect pedals to weave together both haunting and harmonious layers in an ever-growing soundscape. His inspiration originated from the event theme, ‘Time to Engage’, but also became a vehicle to charter his own, very personal journey back into the sonic world of electric guitar. Exploring methodical and organic repetition in sound marked a ‘re-engagement’ with his passion and creative fascination.
An innovative exhibit designer by day, Matt is also one-half of synthpop duo Vital Organs and a composer with the performance ensemble aetherplough. Want to learn more about Matt, then take a look at his Bio on our website.
