rockyroaded with pop-music fragments and sonic gags define some kindof new style difficult to describe. Edwin Pouncey in The Wire called them ""a total meltdown of the senses...a trio of smartarses with nothing to say.

As part of the 12th Annual Outsound New Music Summit, Matt Davignon will present the Pmocatat Ensemble performing his original graphic and textural scores. Each member of the ensemble records the sounds of their instruments in advance of the concert using the composition as their guide to a tape based medium. During the concert, the music is then performed by playing and manipulating these recordings according to the composition.
Performers frequently record the instruments they are most accustomed with, but it's also common for them to play other instruments that are available to them, as defined by the score. The second part of each score provides instructions on how to interact with the recordings, and the other performers on stage. Special attention is usually given to the abilities and limitations of the playback devices.
