Full Content Production

Matthew has produced podcasts for himself and clients since 2005. Recently he put those talents to use with “adventure albums” featuring all-original music and outer-space drama.

In this clip from High Orbit Saves The Pandas, Captain Ebel and his robot buddy have traveled hundreds of years back in time (to the early 2000’s) to save the giant panda from extinction. They just finished searching San Diego Comic Con for actual pandas…

Broadcast/Podcast Music Packages

The Down & Up Podcast, a production from the Depression Is Real Coalition, hired Matthew to produce a suite of music for their show. This involved not just a full orchestral theme song, but multiple versions of varying lengths and styles. Listen to the complete theme, then hear how the alternate versions gave Down & Up a broad palette to work with for their show.

Orchestral Scoring

Matthew holds a degree in Music Composition from Whitworth University, one of the Pacific Northwest’s finest music programs. Even though his “day job” is pop, rock, and dance music, he’s not afraid to get into the pit with the orchestra for a video game or soundtrack.
