about

"What I was recording at that time was evolution in real time. They were my inner thoughts and values, finally revealed. They were unheard no longer." - Matthew Evan Taylor

A five-part sonic journal, Matthew Evan Taylor’s The Unheard Mixtapes are deeply personal, other worldly, and rich with imagery and texture. The Unheard Mixtape 1: Follow to the End captures a journey of self-affirmation inviting creation and reflection, structure and play, intentionality and flexibility. The Unheard Mixtape 2: Language of the Unheard mixes raw dark expression and deep belly-gut reactions to the murders of Ahmaud Arbery and countless other Black victims of police brutality. Both are expressions of moments in time captured through sound and imagination. The Unheard Mixtape 3: Chamber Music offers another lens into the expressive world of multi-instrumentalist, composer, and improviser Matthew Evan Taylor.

As a collection of works, The Unheard Mixtape 3: Chamber Music stands as the sole [mixtape] with overt references to Western classical music.The music however lies in a space that transcends Western classical music, drawing upon the visual, physical, and spiritual worlds in a richly unique tapestry of color, movement, time and space.
