Fall 2018

Back to work after a strangely tropical Scandinavian Summer.  This Fall moves forward with creative spirits high, as Matti puts finishing touches on the Finnish feature film One Last Deal directed by Klaus Härö and compose the score to Felix Herngren´s new comedy TV series Andra Åket.  Matti play a host of shows this Autumn, from Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra to Oslo Silent Film Festival.  Check the Concerts page for updates and more info.  



"Matti Bye’s This Forgotten Land rewrote the book on piano instrumentals, surrounding each track in uncanny, otherworldly atmospheres” — The Arts Desk

“Spooked slow motion circus mannerisms conjure a mad whirligig at the end of time. Ambient traces of Debussy and Satie inform his piano.”— Uncut

“His studio is an analogue world of synths, pianos, celesta, Mellotron and organs, and his music alludes to the strange, romantic mood you get when you hear old merry go rounds, or mechanical instruments in small amusements parks, and abandoned places.” — The Wire

“Matti Bye is a unique artist who can create beautiful music where others would fail. This Forgotten land is a testament to his talent of painting wonderful pictures with music”  — Vinyl Chapters
