New York Times on the MATA Festival

The New York Times on Matthew Wright's MATA-commissoned installation in The Gallery:

Mr. Wright’s installation, which is alternating with other new electronic pieces in the bar area through Thursday night, is largely self-sustaining, with audience members using computer track pads installed on the bar to modify the sounds being produced.

Tonight is the last night of the MATA Festival, and Argento Chamber Ensemble will be performing a free show! Doors are at 6:45pm. Come on by!
