With an early interest in music he spent time thumping an old, slightly out of tune, upright piano, and plucked away on his sisters guitar; whilst through school and various attempts to learn music he had an introduction to the Casio VL tone calculator that could be used as akeyboard for recording short tunes. Teenage years were spent covering theme tunes, pop songs and punk rock on various home keyboards and old guitars. His early 20’s where filled with time spent jamming with bands, hanging round pubs and clubs and living it up. This period also lead to a further exploration of electronic music, when the first half decent kit was acquired, Kawai Keyboard, Alesis Drum Machine and a Yamaha 4 track. Band music gave way to dance music and the almost endless possibilities that midi music could provide. Having always been a keen fan of Sci-fi and Fantasy it wasn’t long before theme music became the primary focus. 30’s gave way to career, marriage and family with only minor time spent developing ideas. Late 30’s into 40’s have provided an opportunity to acquire new gear, take stock of old ideas and finally, with the aid of the information revolution, launch a new attack on writing and producing music.
Current set up includes: Korg Triton le, Cubase 6.5, Tascam US-600, and my guitar & bass
Now working on ideas from his home studio in Liverpool, Matt is keen to develop his interest in soundtrack for TV & film and hopes to one day to have to opportunity to be given the task of writing a full musical score.
