“Matthew Whiteside explores combinations of spectral and melodic patterns. With him, tonality and sound complement each other into an inseparable and original unity.”

Matthew Whiteside is a cerebral composer and sound designer who’s creating classical-crossover works to challenge the 21st century consensus.’
M-Magazine http://www.m-magazine.co.uk/features/interviews/interview-matthew-whiteside/

Dichroic Light takes its name from dichroic glass that displays two colours, depending on how the light hits it. It’s a nice metaphor for an album which has the duality of incredible beauty and unsettling mood.’
Lorna Irvine, Across the Arts ****

‘Matthew Whiteside is clearly a talented and creative person who is already doing well and no doubt has a bright future.’

Dichroic Light, recorded by Abby Hayward for Dichroic Light

‘a magic sonic amplification of the solo cello through electronics’
Ken Walton, The Scotsman. 16/5/2015 ****

‘Melding chamber aesthetics with electronic minimalism, the Lisburn-born composer’s debut strikes a rewarding balance of abstract subtlety and melodic power’

Solo for Viola D’amore and Live Electronics, recorded by Emma Lloyd for Dichroic Light

‘overall effect is one of meditation – a Japanese stone garden whose raked ripples have been brought into sound’
Dominey Clements, Musicweb International http://www.musicweb-international.com/classrev/2015/May/Whiteside_light_IMBT1501.htm

‘Music for headphones, in the best possible way’
Graham Rickson, The Arts Desk http://www.theartsdesk.com/classical-music/classical-cds-weekly-adams-bliss-matthew-whiteside

‘those delicately sculpted moments that show Matthew’s flair for working with the expressive freedom and flexibility of the solo performer’
