Mat Watson is an Australian multi-instrumentalist focussed on the exploration of electronic sound and the drum set spanning experimental, improvisational and traditional forms. He is widely recognised for his involvement in large-scale unconventional orchestras and collaborations. He has played with Japanese underground legends Boredoms on several BoaDrum concerts, composed music and conducted new work for the MESS Synthesiser Orchestra (16 people and 40 synthesisers) at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl. Collaborations include Bronx heavyweights E.S.G, Australian music legends Underground Lovers and Ollie Olsen as part of Taipan Tiger Girls with Dr Lisa MacKinney, among many others. He has produced multiple records as Other Places and is currently performing live under several monikers. He spends available downtime at Imaginary Sound Fields disappearing into the matrix of his Synthi Aks, thinking about inner space and compression ratios.
