Music & Sound Specialist
Mat joins the SINCE68 collective as music and sound specialist, covering a wide range of skills and experience including music and sound design, voice-over recording and scripting.
After classical training from the age of six, Mat started out his professional music and audio career in the 1990's underground dance scene, running an indie label and touring internationally with his live drum and bass outfit. He also undertook various projects for Zomba/Jive during the nineties and spent time in both the UK and Norway in production situations.
In 2002 Mat formed his own enterprise together with his friend Mike Wilkie. The duo won an Online Music award in 2001 for 'Best Online Music Services Website' with the innovative 3qsound.com, one of the earliest production music download sites. From there, they went on to write prolifically for clients as diverse as Universal, BBC, Sky TV, Channel 4, Vertigo Films and Warner Chappel, having work featured on every conceivable medium securing film and television placements with, amongst others, 20th Century Fox, Pathe, Pagani, Peugeot, Ford, BAFTA, Lionsgate, Lipton and BMW. Currently running at over 2000 active copyrights, their catalogue is also augmented with voice over recording, an acclaimed audio samples label ‘Freshtone Samples’ and a Royalty Free Music label aimed at corporate users.
Mat is at home with tight deadlines, eclectic requirements and work closely with clients to realise their needs however diverse.
When he's not writing or recording, Mat spends his time with his partner, three daughters and a decidedly ancient Labrador, Molly. He's also a keen runner and has completed an Ironman triathlon, several marathons and various challenge events.
