Below is a commentary by the label.

"Martina Berther and Philipp Schlotter are active in pop and jazz, respectively, while also exploring the fringes of bands, sound art, and composing film scores. Their first collaboration The album Matt was recorded over four days in a church in the Swiss village from which the album takes its name.Berther and Schlotter used synthesizers and electric bass, as well as the building's organ, to write and free improvise. The five pieces were recorded directly to tape by Flo Götte, without overdubbing, and were produced by Hallow Ground labelmate FUJI||||TA and mastering engineer. It's intimate and raw, reminiscent of the introspective atmosphere of Lawrence English's latest album for the Swiss label.``Matt'' is a work by two versatile composers and musicians who bring minimalist ideas to life by giving them plenty of space.

Two variations on the same idea, with very different results, and are perfect examples of how the duo can effectively create emotional sonic worlds with little effort.Berther and Schlotter's conceptual minimalism has fruitful and multifaceted aesthetic results.Matt is an intimate album, marked by a sense of life and spontaneity, but also a product of concise composition.

Hallow Ground:

"Martina Berther and Philipp Schlotter are prolific in their respective ways, having been active in pop and jazz music, respectively, as well as playing in bands and exploring the outer fringes of sound art or composing music for film. Their first joint album »Matt« was recorded over the course of four days in a church in the Swiss village after which the album was named. Berther and Schlotter worked with the buildingʼs organ as well as synthesizers and electric bass to follow an experimental approach that oscillated between composition and free improvisation. The five pieces, recorded directly to tape by Flo Götte without any additional overdubs, are characterized by an intimacy and rawness that calls to mind the introspective atmosphere of Hallow Ground label mateʼs FUJI||||||||||TA or mastering engineer Lawrence Englishʼs latest album for the Swiss label. »Matt« is the result of two versatile composers and musicians executing minimalist ideas by giving them plenty of space to unfold...

[...]As two variations affect on the same idea with very different results, these two pieces perfectly represent how the duo effectively creates emotional sound worlds with very few means. Berther and Schlotterʼs conceptual minimalism yields rewarding, multi-faceted aesthetic results. »Matt« is an intimate album, marked by a sense of vividness and spontaneity, but also the product of compositional conciseness.
