Modulate Your Modulations

with Matthew Dear


Modulate Your Modulations: the importance of creating unique sounds and layers (VST Effect stacking, resampling, and all around sound manipulating) and Hands-on DJ'ing 101 with Vinyl: mixing songs, using the EQ, scratching and basic beat juggling/rewinding. Matthew Dear is a shapeshifter, oscillating seamlessly between DJ, dance-music producer, and experimental pop auteur. He is a founding artist on both Ghostly International and its dancefloor offshoot, Spectral Sound. He writes, produces, and mixes all of his work. He maintains four aliases (Audion, False, Jabberjaw, and Matthew Dear), each with its own style and distinct visual identity. He is a devoted family man, a studio tinkerer, a regular lecturer at the University of Michigan School of Music and youth leader at Ghostly’s Knowledge Share workshops. In 2018, Dear released Bunny, a dual vision of avant-pop from a 21st-century polymath.
