Accorder Music announces the signing of composer Matthew Slater to its growing roster of accomplished film and TV writers. Matthew has a wide and varied range of compositional styles – equally at home composing for feature films, long running television series, TV commercials, classical pieces and club dance tracks. The deal was brokered by Amanda Street of DNA Music.
After studying piano, conducting and composition at college, Matthew went on to work with film composer and BAFTA Award-Winner Barrington Pheloung as Orchestrator and Music Assistant. This saw Matthew working on a wide range of television, film and theatre productions including:
Sharon Maguire’s Incendiary for FilmFour and Capitol Films, Anand Tucker’s And When Did You Last See Your Father? for Number 9 Films and FilmFour, Hilary and Jackie for October Films/BBC, Inspector Morse and now the spin-off series Lewis for ITV1, and Mamma Mia, the West End stage production.
Matthew’s work in the dance industry earned him numerous licensing deals including:
Clubbers Guide To Trance – Ministry Of Sound (Mixed by ATB), The Awakening – Renaissance Records (Mixed by David Seaman) and Reykjavik – Global Underground (Mixed by Nick Warren).
Radio plays have included BBC Radio 1, Virgin Radio and Kiss FM along with many international radio stations.
