Maton Guitars - The Australian Music Vault

BENCU helped producer Jenny O’Meara and the Australian Music Vault, bring the history of Maton Guitars to life in an important exhibition at the Arts Centre Melbourne.

Central to Melbourne’s and Australia’s emergence as a true musical power, is the story of Bill May and his passion for creating incredible guitars. Today the most famous artists in the world use Maton Guitars, but my favourite insight gained from this project, was that The Rolling Stones - Keith Richards used a Maton for the recording of ‘Gimme Shelter’ - POW!!

BENCU edited and created graphics and animation for this wonderful two part mini-doco with Paul Shanahan at Final Sound sorting the all-important audio.
