Collaborators

Music

Ewan Campbell – Matías Hancke de la Fuente (UK)
Ewan and Matías are London based composers who met at King’s College London while studying Composition. In addition to writing music, they are also performers: Ewan is a cellist and Matías performs with a laptop. Their interest in expanding their own musical possibilities, integrating acoustic and electronic sounds and exploring the boundaries between composed and improvised ideas, drove them to start an ongoing artistic partnership. As such, the duo has performed in several dissimilar venues like churches, squats, pubs, universities and concert halls throughout London, Cambridge, Oxford, York and Coventry. The duo has also expressed itself through and in collaboration with other artistic disciplines such as video, painting and physical theatre. Their work with Bottlefed involved the continuation of the development of ‘Hold Me Until You Break’ as both a performance and as an installation.
