Matt Sargent is a composer and guitarist based in Woodstock, New York. His music grows out of an appreciation of natural resonances, recursive structures, computer modeling, and outdoor listening. His music has been described as “so simple, so natural, and yet sets up a complex set of interactions.” (Jennie Gottschalk, SoundExpanse)

His music has recently been heard in concerts and installations at the 2016 Frequency Festival (Chicago), Darmstadt Ferienkurse für Neue Musik (Germany), the Wulf (Los Angeles), the Stone (New York), Machine Project (Los Angeles), June in Buffalo Festival, Atlantic Center for the Arts, Yale University Haskins Laboratories, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland, among others.

Matt is a visiting assistant professor of electronic music and sound at Bard College.
