Notes perfectly tuned
Often spun from machine code
Matthew Creer (b. 1982) is a composer and electronic musician based in San Francisco, CA. His short bios are often written in a form of experimental poetry that reflects his unique use of rhythm and pitch materials called just intonation. These poems are also directly related to his incessant urge to tell stories, create narration and be rather noisy, as he learned to do while growing up near Yosemite, California.
Matthew uses computer coding languages developed for musicians and artists to writes pieces that are often for social media platforms such as Instagram and YouTube. He also performs live computer music and has written acoustic music for performers such as Ryan Ross Smith, Crystal Pascucci and the Eclipse Quartet.
He has been teaching in the music department of City College of San Francisco since 2014.
