Composer and saxophonist Matthew Evan Taylor (1980) has been hailed as a composer whose music is “insistent and defiant…envelopingly hypnotic” (Alan Young, Lucid Culture). His music has been performed across the United States and Europe by such ensembles as the Cleveland Orchestra, the Detroit Symphony, and Metropolis Ensemble. Matthew is currently working with the Metropolitan Museum of Art on his newest project Postcards to the Met; and has collaborated with such creators as musicians Elliott Sharp and Marilyn Crispell, visual artist Dannielle Tegeder, and dancer Sara Shelton.

Matthew is Assistant Professor of Music at Middlebury College. His album The Unheard Mixtapes is available on your favorite streaming platform.
