Matt and Tracey were members of the Melbourne-based percussion quartet
Woof! which presented its own concert series in Melbourne and was part of
the Musica Viva in Schools programme in Victoria. In 1999 Woof! recorded a
CD of the Tuneful Percussion Works of Percy Grainger. They have been
performing together as Mattra Percussion Duo since 2000.
Mattra has performed for Virtuosi Tasmania and on ABC Classic FM's "Sunday Live" as well as many other recitals which have included premieres of duo
percussion works by international and local composers. Mattra's repertoire
primarily comprises music for vibraphone and marimba as well as works for untuned percussion instruments.
Tracey Patten started playing percussion in her school band in Adelaide and
then the Combined South Australian Schools Percussion Ensemble and South
Australian Youth Orchestra. Upon completing a Bachelor of Music in
the Elder Conservatorium she moved to Melbourne to complete Honours at the
Victorian College of the Arts where she was awarded the Willem Van Otterloo
Orchestral Scholarship which enabled her to complete an Advanced Diploma at
the Sweelinck Conservatorium in Amsterdam.
When she returned to Australia she continued to freelance with many
ensembles, including the Melbourne and Tasmanian Symphony Orchestras and
Victoria. Since moving to Hobart in 2000, Tracey has continued to work with
these orchestras and teaches at The Friends' School and with the Tasmanian
Glover finalist, Kerry Thompson, has been a successful cartoonist
(including for The Sydney Morning Herald), illustrator, and author for over
30 years under her nom de plume, "Kerry Millard".
Kerry has twice been voted best Single Gag Cartoon Artist by the Australian
Cartoonists' Association. She has also written two books, has illustrated
over 30, including one named Australian Children's Book Council Book of the
Year (Younger Readers), one which was turned into a feature film in which Kerry
appears for 2 seconds (on set she was kissed by a sea lion and hugged by
Jodie Foster), and two which have been translated into over 20 languages.
In 2008 Kerry began exploring with acrylics on canvas, leaping into a
search for new ways of freezing moments in paint. Colour plays a large
part in her work which varies widely in style.
