Matthew D. Gantt is a composer and conceptualist based in New York City. His compositional practice focuses on the intersection of procedural systems and the idiosyncrasies of the technology that facilitate them, as well as the overlap in methodology between the production and consumption of networked cultural artifacts. Recent projects have included a suite of generative pieces for tape and synthesizer, an eight by eleven foot graphic score, and a series of VR environments containing procedural motion and spatial sound. While living in New York, Gantt has performed or presented work at a range of venues, including Roulette, Issue Project Room, Silent Barn, the New Museum and the Stone, and internationally at the IRCAM Academy in Paris, France. He received an MM in composition from the CUNY Brooklyn Center for Computer Music, and currently works as a studio assistant to Morton Subotnick.
- Founded as a not-for-profit organization by artists in 1977, Harvestworks has helped a generation of artists create new works using technology. Our mission is to support the creation and presentation of art works achieved through the use of new and evolving technologies.
