Bio

Matt Hsu is a 2020 QMusic Award winning composer and multi-instrumentalist who creates intricately-crafted experimental music using world instruments and rethought everyday objects. His one-person orchestra project Matt Hsu’s Obscure Orchestra is the brainchild of his offbeat musical sensibilities.

Drawing on his Taiwanese-Australian roots, he creates otherworldly compositions that celebrate difference, inclusivity and the fuzzy spaces in-between cultures. As an advocate of fair treatment for marginalised peoples, he often uses music projects to underscore First Nations, gender diverse, refugee and immigrant issues.

Matt has composed and performed for TEDx, Bigsound, LaBoite Theatre and Brisbane Festival.

i'm sure it's expertly put together but wow it feels so free and off the cuff, like something a room of really talented humans would just come up with in an afternoon.

The communal vibes and powerful energy of all the voices that come together in this magic track are fantastic. Hsu - you are a genius, and I hope you keep coming up with killer songs like this.

there's a communal energy to this that welcomes the listener in with open arms. a warm embrace of sound and stories that I want to be wrapped in forever.
