I have always been fascinated and involved in projects that thrive on cross pollination between a variety of art forms.
Over the years I have been collaborating with many different artists in South Africa, but would like to continue pursuing such endeavors abroad where I can gain experience working with foreign artists.
I have a deep passion and desire to speak out about social issues prevalent in my generation both in South Africa and abroad through numerous forms of art in performances as well as through online media.
With this CV serving as motivation, I am hereby requesting residency and an opportunity to work on my proposed project with artists within the Akademie Shloss Solitude institute.
I propose to use this collaborative performance or project as a platform to raise awareness around numerous appropriate social issues agreed upon by the stake holders involved.
My request is to work alongside musician and producer Denise Onen, a fellow South African musician and graduate of Music Technology to travel to Germany to collaborate with other artists so this project may come to light and bring about awareness, change and hope amongst our fellow peers.

EARLY MUSIC VIDEOS
At an early age I started experimenting with Music video editing and creation. My first Music video was done under the Psuedonym "Black Saffron" and the style of my work was predominantly dark and macabre. Later as I steered myself towards a lighter form of sound I renamed myself Matinino.
MATININO: C'est La Vie
Black Saffron: Bagatelle
Black Saffron: Der Dichters Brust
FANTASY OF FLIGHT
SPRING ARTS FESTIVAL 2014
In 2014, my music project at the time: CROAK, joined up with the local artist, Vasek Matousek, and the wine farm “Twee Jonge Gezellen”, and hosted an exhibition combined with a show. The wine farm provided Krone Borealis MCC wine and numerous delicacies and canapés , enjoyed while exploring the Vasek's work. The audience was then led down into the cellars for the performance. World renowned flutist Allesandro Gigli collaborated with CROAK to create a unique atmospheric muasical and visual experience. During the performance, Thomas Dorman (aka Dr Benway), painted a large canvas which was auctioned after the show.
