Emerging young Melbourne-based musician Matthias Schack-Arnott performs Fluvial, a solo work for a large-scale kinetic percussion instrument. A horizon of quivering metals, glass and stone are used to create a work of shimmering textural extremes.

Fluvial draws its inspiration from tidal movement, currents, transformation and ritual. Informed by Matthias’ training as a classical percussionist, the work combines rigorous musical processes with an immersive installation environment. Objects are suspended en masse above an eight-metre bed of granite, metal and water. Glass bottles quiver and collide; overlapping metal tubes create glistening harmonic swells as wind chimes hover and sway over the instrument.

A stunning and beautifully balanced exploration of sound and texture, Fluvial renders the percussion instrument into a teeming, fluid mass, moving between the ecstatic and the absurd.

'As thought provoking as it is beautiful… Theatrically stunning, aurally stimulating, Fluvial is an unmissable experience.' – RealTime
