Mattokìnd features the talents of Jae Kay and Cristiano Nicolini. Cinematic, amorphous, and dense with experimentally-rich, synth-laden soundscapes, the music of Mattokìnd sits comfortably in the ambiguous space between genres. The collaboration between them draws on their respective backgrounds as classical instrumentalists and electronic producers, a synthesis of all things that have inspired the duo in their separate journeys from indie to electronica, classical and post-rock.
Jae Kay is a violinist and composer. Since graduating from The Royal Academy of Music in London, she has worked with ensembles such as Orchestre de Chambre Paris, London Contemporary Orchestra and London Sinfonietta, and has had live performances broadcast on BBC Radio 3, Radio France and Bayerischer Rundfunk.
Cristiano Nicolini, a Berlin-based producer and sound engineer. Over the past 10 years living in Barcelona, Amsterdam, he has worked as producer, studio engineer, sound designer, and tech consultant.
