Matthew Peterson writes music that explores frontiers of sound and expression. A composer of “considerable imagination and individuality” (Houston Chronicle), his music is “fresh and passionate…beautiful, challenging” (BBC Berkshire), ranging from songs of criminals and outcasts, to modern settings of sacred texts, to stunning orchestral soundscapes. Born in North Dakota, he lives in Stockholm, Sweden, and over fifty of his works have been performed across North America and Europe.
