"The Cutting Edge" - THE NEW YORKER


Matt is a Performing Artist for Buffet Crampon and as such, plays exclusively on a Buffet Green Line oboe;
...an instrument that is in harmony
with the environment.


Created in 1994, the Green Line series of instruments has taken advantage of the excess wood remaining from the clarinet manufacturing process. This process of combining grenadilla powder with carbon fibers produces an oboe that is greatly resistant to environmental change and helps to relieve stress on the African grenadilla wood population.

January 6th around 7:15pm

 -TAMPA BAY / SARASOTA TRIBUNE-
"Cro-Ken, readied with the projected live image of a preset textured and framed tabletop terrain on the wall and paint colors in hand, commenced to pour the colors onto his canvas. The audience watched the paint flow, eddy round the contours, blend together and repeat. In much the same way, the live and recorded oboe sequences looped, layered and blended together in intriguing ways."
