Equally at home as performer and composer Matt London aspires to create emotive music inspired by free improvisation.
A graduate of the Royal Northern College of Music [MMus Distinction] studying with Rob Buckland and Andy Scott [saxophone] and with current doctoral study at Brunel University London under the supervision of Colin Riley and Christopher Fox [composition] he continues to explore and develop a forward looking approach to his music centred around the impromptu.
Today his main musical influences as a performer-composer are drawn from master improvisers and composers such as Paul Dunmall, Barry Guy, Brian Irvine, Paul Rogers and Wadada Leo Sminth to name a few.
Held in high regard as a classical tenor saxophone specialist his debut classical album “SPEAK NOW music for tenor saxophone” presents a selection of original tenor saxophone works by composers from across the UK.
