Electro-acoustic polymath Matt Menovcik is equal parts composer, songwriter, arranger, producer, multi-instrumental performer, and singer. It has been said that "...he's not nearly as famous as Gibbard (Death Cab for Cutie), but Matt Menovcik just might be as talented" (Seattle Times). Menovcik has also been hailed as a "top-rate songwriter" (Seattle Weekly). After spending most of the 00’s recording and touring with DIY indie rock acts and collaborations including Saeta, Ms. Led, and ROPE, INC. (with infamous producer Kramer), Menovcik decided to turn his attention to composition and film scoring, while never leaving his roots as a songwriter.
Inspired by minimalism, pop and ambient electronica, Menovcik’s sonic world blends his music knowledge, love of technology and unapologetic emotionalism into a uniquely inspired voice. Menovcik has released many critically acclaimed albums on labels such as Ghost Records (Italy), Second Shimmy, Tarnished and Ippylu. His most recent release is 2014’s Alone, With You released under his own name. The many films featuring Matt’s work and specifically written scores include Silvio Soldini’s Days and Clouds, Cesar Lanza’s La Perfezionista, and Faith Vs. Fate’s Run, Hide, Die (AKA The Anniversary).
Menovcik is currently working a collection of instrumental pieces based on the concept of slowness.
