Mattin is an artist, musician and theorist working conceptually with
noise and improvisation. Through his practice and writing, he explores
performative forms of estrangement as a way to deal with structural
alienation. Mattin has exhibited and toured worldwide. He has performed

(Berlin), Arika (Glasgow) and lectured and taught in institutions such
as Dutch Art Institute, Cal Arts, Bard College, Paris VIII, Princeton
University and Goldsmiths College. In 2017 he completed a PhD at the
University of the Basque Country under the supervision of the
philosopher Ray Brassier. Along with Anthony Iles he edited the book
Noise & Capitalism (Kritika/Arteleku 2009). In 2012 CAC Brétigny and
Tuamaturgia published Unconsitituted Praxis, a book collecting his
writing plus interviews and reviews from performances. Anthony Iles and
Mattin are currently in the final stages of editing the volume
Abolishing Capitalist Totality: What is To Be Done Under Real
Subsumption? (Archive Books). Urbanomic published last year his book
Social Dissonance. Mattin is part of the bands Billy Bao and Regler and
has over 100 releases in different labels worldwide. He is currently
