Music Description

Working with Second City, the legendary comedy theatre, Matthew's had to create an extremely varied catalogue of music. From the fierce 20th century classical sounds of Shostakovich to the modern, trippy vibe of electronica, from a soulful and earnest power ballad to a pulsating and exotic bhangra, he's been expected to deliver any styles the scene requires. That being said, he's happiest creating music in classical styles, and is a specialist at creating authentic sounding imitations of historical music.
