mbryo

MBRYO is the genius behind the theme music for The Players and also writes some very special compositions for us such as the runway music created for Henri's fashion show for Flora. In this, our first episode of Playing On for 2019 Samsara has sits down for a chat with him at The Ambitious Act Cafe to talk about their collaboration and also his background and other artistic projects.

MUSICAL COMPOSITION BY MBRYO

In 2018 mbryo (Matt Brown) worked with the Horrendus team with an original score inspired by Byzantine chant, medieval instrumentation and a splash of distortion.  Also at the Comedy Festival last year, his music featured in Rod Lara’s Banjo at the Spiegeltent. 2017 saw mbryo working with Illumi-Nation Theatre on Sarah Kane’s 4.48 Psychosis, Daniel Keene’s Lost: 5 , and with Owl and Cat Theatre for Erasers, INT, A Very Modern Marriage, Asylum and A Matter Of Life And Death, amongst others.  For the screen his credits include Black Death (Global Mana Foundation),  Lifting Clouds (Medea Films), Polyamor and Wish (Kamizai Films) and The Phantom Frequency (NYFA).  His interest in gaming and interactivity has led to working with Arludo on educational mobile games and, previously, with Tentative Games on Lamb Slam. Trained at La Trobe University, mbryo incorporates numerous styles, including art and orchestral music, metal, blues and electro with a textural focus.  He also creates interactive, aleatoric audio/visual works for his band 'XIBE8' utilising computer and voice.

EDWARD Is that the C7 I insisted upon? 
FRANK Yes sir.  It has posed us a few problems as the staging wasn’t designed for a piano this size, but River and I sorted it out in the end.
