m a t e k o i are audio-visual duo Maxim Barron (Toy, Patent Saints) and visual artist Daisy  Dickinson. A combination of strobing visuals and live electronics triggers a bizarre hallucinatory dreamscape – “which left many feeling like they had a close encounter”. 

The night features three immersive performances using a variety of electronic, electroacoustic and live techniques including strobing and feedback with an aim to elevate and induce heightened states.  

Using projection mapping and live triggered light, m a t e k o i perform from within a cubic structure surrounded by frames and string, moving sound and visuals around the space to give the audience an otherworldly, multisensory experience. 
Hypnotic. Strobe soaked and sonically spatialised. m a t e k o i inhabits the space between.
