Matthew Whiteside is the One To Watch in the Sunday Herald culture awards 2017. He is a ‘cerebral composer and sound designer who’s creating works to challenge the 21st century consensus.’ He writes music for concert, film and collaborative installations while often-using live electronics he seeks to create work with a meditative quality inviting the listener to project upon and experience on their own, rather than the composer’s, terms.

Recent work has included a short opera Little Black Lies commissioned by Scottish Opera Connect, with libretto by Helene Grøn, Entangled commissioned by the Institute of Physics for the 2018 NI Science Festival and working on a new installation called We Are All Made of Stars with filmmaker/chorographer Marisa Zanotti and Magnetic North.
