Skateboarding, Rock and Roll, Comic Books, Anime, Jazz, Pop Music, Fashion, Street Art and Architecture have all served as influences in the art and music of Matt Corrado. Matt is an interdisciplinary artist whose exhibit includes a site specific ambient sound installation incorporating many influences from the world of popular culture. The exhibit also examines the many cultural contexts of the idea of "Wavelengths". A wavelength can be a measure of the distance between repetitions of a shape or sound. It includes peaks, valleys and a variety of modulations, all evident in Matt's work. The sound installation incorporates dialogues and monologues of people discussing wavelengths on a scientific level as well as on a linguistic and cultural one. "Are we on the same wavelength" has come to mean a sense of sympathy, empathy and rapport..all themes in Matt's visual and musical work. Matt composed music for and played on the sound installation and is joined by the musical talents of Sean Gaiser and Jarrett Nicolay. The exhibition also includes paintings and drawings exploring themes of hype, integrity, humor, discipline, money, truth and parenthood.
