He writes the music, plays the music;
and makes the films thathe writes
the music for. Rory Weller ls jealous
of D'Note's Matt Winn.
Name Matt Winn aka Matt Wienevski
(he changed it as people kept spelling it
Place of origin London’s East End. Occupation? Musical visionary behind
the band D*Note, and a film director to
Is he a proper director, or is it just the Wienevski holiday videos he does? No,
it's the full lights, camera and action malarky. He's made TV commercials for retail chain Our Price and the Financial Times, and put together pop videos for people like The James Taylor Quartet
and Roy Ayers. He's just finished a short
film called Coming Down, which Channel 4 are keen to acquire.
Coming Down? That’ll be a documentary about escalators then? Not exactly. Five friends return home
post-club, and the film tracks their highs
and lows until dawn. Mixmag have described it as, ’The most realistic film ever made about dance culture.’
Winn's a bit bright then? Awe inspiringly so. Not only did he direct the film, but he wrote it, composed the music and played most of the instruments. He does admit to being a bit of a control freak. On his D‘Note work he writes the music and lyrics, produces, mixes, programmes, plays instruments and arranges the string sections.
How did he get into music? Influenced by his father's jazz records and the music of his teenage years, he formed a jazz/punk band while studying English at Bristol. Returning to London he created D*Note and released his first album Babel, a jazzy sampladelic affair on Dorado in 1991. This was followed
by Criminal Justice, an album which saw
him heading into jungle, and the Steve Reich minimal electro production which can also be heard on the new album.
And it's good is it? Very much so. The new album, simply entitled D*Note is slo mo jungle, 4am chemical jazz fused with classical swung dings. Talent, dontcha just hate it.
D'Note is released on 74 Jul. Coming Down is scheduled to be screened on Channel 4 later this year.
