Electronic, Post classical , Ambient.

Eight new instrumental songs in the electronic, post classical/ambient vein. I've tried to make music for a more introspective listening experience that strives to enhance the moments, and gently steer the listener to imaginative places where you're an equal participant, as opposed to me dictating it. Consisting of pieces that have the same essence as ambient, but still maintain strong melodic and harmonic aspects. Mostly piano driven with assorted electronics, fretless bass, cello and violin throughout.

I hope you like it , and would love any feedback you may have . I can be reached at http://www.scottmatthewscanada.com/

Static IP

Scott Matthews

In cart Not available Out of stock

Eight new instrumental songs strongly influenced by the style of old school Euro/Germanic electronica. By one of the original Toronto electronic artists from the 80s.

Toronto born musician and composer, has been making music and producing for 30 years. In the early 80s, he was strongly involved in the Toronto electronic music scene. Specifically the art rock and experimental music that was breaking ground at that time with artists like Brian Eno ,Kraftwerk and Japan. Scott played in many bands, but eventually felt a need to release solo material that focused on the more experimental and ambient. Deciding to focus on fretless bass as a featured instrument, he released a solo album called "Boats In Rivers", which garnered extensive radio play and video play for the single. Two years later he released "Role Boys". Both singles were nominated for U-know awards and Casby awards in Canada in 1983 and 1986. In 2005 ,he and long time friend and guitarist David Barrett,(David Barrett trio) released an album of instrumentals entitled "Amitahba". In 2009 they followed it up with an album called "Radium Lustre". In 2012 Scott released " My Fathers' Paintings"An album of 8 original songs that Scott wrote and performed all the vocals and instruments.

In 2015, Scott will release another project called "Static IP". Eight instrumental electronic tracks that are strongly grounded in the style of old school Euro/Germanic electronica.

In late 2015 Scott will release "Crazy Ivan" . Nine new prog-rock songs that further explore tales of soldiers, the sun, the sea and the sand. Featuring guest musicians Paul Shilton, Dale Anne Brendon, Tim Smythe and David Barrett.

In cart Not available Out of stock

Ethereal and atmospheric songs inspired by lore and legends of the sea and the ancient mariner. By Scott Matthews. (Vocals, All Instruments) . Tipping a hat to keyboard oriented rock of the 70s', and the leanings of the 80s' romantic era.

2012 Followup to Radium Lustre. 8 new tracks by Scott Matthews. Scott wrote and performed all songs, including vocals, piano, synths, virtual orch, bass and drums. Many songs have direct or underlyiing themes based around mariner lore and myths. "The rime of the ancient mariner", figures prominently into many of these songs lyrics and atmospheric motifs, that lend themselves to the ethereal and mystical quality of the sea. The songs are essentially piano centric, but with a strong leaning towards prog rock of the 70s' (Genesis, Supertramp) and the more English and German vibes of the 80s' (Eno, Japan, Bowie, Roxy) To find out more please visit http://www.scottmatthewscanada.com for more info . thanks for visiting Scott
