“There’s nothing quite like MATA, which every year organizes the city’s most exciting showcase for outstanding young composers from around the world” – The New Yorker
this is a quick report from New York:
It has been spectacular! What a unique event and what a generous contribution from the knitting community. I will get in touch with the Knitting Orchestra and the Knitting Soloists to have all names to present to you. The musicians were wonderful, it all sounded fantastic after only a few rehearsals. The reactions from the audience have been very positive! I’m over the moon and try to have a few days off, it has been a very intensive project.
Here are some snapshots from the concert, I will start working on the filmed documentation soon.

Isabelle Holmes: “Come see me finish this on stage at Roulette tomorrow night. Show is at 7pm, and I promise you, watching me and 21 other knitters, including Janusz Jaworski, will NOT be like watching paint dry. It will be way fun. Performance knitting, who knew? Jobina Tinnemans knew. 🙂 ”
