Lives and works in Oakland, California USA
Matt Davignon of Oakland, California has been performing and recording his own brand of experimental music over the last 10 years.
Completely self-taught, he performs on a large variety of less-than-professional grade instruments.
(Including samplers, turntable, cd player, toys, found objects, prepared guitar, store-bought keyboards and drum machine.)
Matt also organizes a plethora of unusual shows in the bay area, including the Found Objects Festival, the "2 Night Thingy for Voice & Electronics",
The Suitcase Ensemble and Himp-Hoxp (which mixes experimental improvisers with underground rappers).
Despite claims otherwise, Muck is Ernesto Diaz-Infante, Matt Davignon & Marjorie Sturm. "The strangest, most disconcerting take on any kind of so-called post-rock I have heard to this day." Francois Couture, All Music Guide
