PLEASE NOTE: Matt is no longer a columnist on The Muse's Muse. His life has gotten extremely busy. We all recognize that such things happen and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors. I'm very grateful for the time he took to participate.

In Sound will deal with sound as a whole. Iíve chosen the title In Sound, because that will allow me to write freely about sound, as that includes all music, and anything of or pertaining to sound. Itís this flexibility that is necessary when one decides to write a regularly scheduled topic-based piece, such as a column; you want to be specific, but you want to be general, as well.

In Sound will focus on tying sonic, and musical experiences, and in some cases extra-musical experiences, into creativity and inspiration as a whole, with special emphasis on composition and songwriting. As a sound artist, Iím constantly inspired by those sounds around me, itís my goal to bring some of those stories and ideas to the page here, expound on them, and possibly create new compositional and music writing perspectives for other artists to consider when they set about to create.
