Plexusplay combines stunning 3D animated motion graphics and jazz synth xylophone to create a live dance music experience unlike any other.

From emotional interludes, to comical choreography, to heavy headbangers and stunning solos, Plexusplay’s show offers something we can all immerse ourselves in.

 

Born and raised in Boston MA, Plexusplay (Matt DiBiase) has been a lifelong musician since he began studying mallet percussion at age 6. His hunger for learning has led him through rigorous conservatory training, self-taught workflows in electronic music production and animation, a college degree and publications in the neurosciences at esteemed universities like Harvard Medical School, and concertizing internationally in North America, Europe, and Asia. Matt’s many talents make him a well-rounded composer and an unbounded music technologist.

 

The songs in Plexusplay’s movie shows take two primary forms - 1) lyrical lighthearted storytelling, and 2) abstract instrumental dance music. The story show includes captivating dance remixes of legendary film scores, singalong classics like “What A Wonderful World”, as well as songs from his comedy album ADULTING, which brings EDM energy to our shared experiences in cyclical day-to-day life - cleaning dishes, screen time binges, taxes…etc. In contrast, his more instrumental repertoire showcases his virtuosic mallet playing as the centerpiece. Visuals for these songs are driven through industry leading softwares like the Unreal 5 gaming engine and TouchDesigner’s visual programming interface. Matt is currently working towards enabling audience gestures and votes in real time to change the audiovisual environment he inhabits as a jazz dance music improviser. If you're looking for trendy music, turn away. If you're looking to embark on a journey through both the light-hearted and the profound, Plexusplay will take you there.
