Forest Swords

Forest Swords Live A/V (UK)

Having distilled his recorded output into striking audio-visual live sets, excellent producer and composer Matthew Barnes aka Forest Swords will present his latest album ‘Compassion’ (Ninja Tune, 2017) at MIRA Berlin accompanied by visuals from Sam Wiehl for a truly unmissable performance.

His music fashions hip-hop-inspired beats with atmospheric samples and evocative guitar work. The dreamlike tracks resulting explore the intersections between euphoria and melancholy while weaving threads between them all to create music that’s both ancient and modern.
