Matt Sterling has been making music for more than 10 years. He takes cues from a number of sources including the improvisational aspects of jazz, the DIY attitude of punk, and the soul-of-the-machine ethos of techno. Working almost entirely in synthesized sounds, he has developed a unique sound that can engage both the body and the mind at once. More recently he has taken that same strategy to the visual realm and has been developing video systems to compliment the musical aspect. The visual displays draw from abstract impressionist paintings, psychedelic light shows, and experimental videos, but utilize the computing power available to form a dynamic relationship with the music. Mr. Sterling hopes to create an environment that immerses the audience in a hypnotic experience.
