Matthew Whiteside is a composer, collaborator and sound designer based in Glasgow nominated as ‘One to Watch’ in the Herald’s Culture Awards 2016. He writes music for concert, film and collaborative installations often-using live electronics within his work. In 2016 he was commissioned Lorimer Productions for a new a cappella work and Cottiers Chamber Project for a large scale work for vocal trio, choir and trombone quartet. Matthew’s recent work Solo for Viola D’amore and Live Electronics, recorded by Emma Lloyd was described as having the overall effect of ‘one of meditation – a Japanese stone garden whose raked ripples have been brought into sound’ by Musicweb International and features on his debut album Dichroic Light released in 2015 and supported by Creative Scotland.
