"let me join the chorus and say that what Matt is doing every month at the Tritone is beautiful, unique, and truly inspiring. Every month he picks a subject; interviews people in Philadelphia about that subject; composes original music based on the interviews for Aerial Photograph, his 9-to-12-piece ensemble made up of strings, winds, and a rhythm section; records the music for release on a limited-edition, hand-packaged CD; and performs the music at Tritone. In telling the stories of people of all walks of life and in presenting challenging, contemplative music in a bar, Matt is demonstrating the power of music to break down all barriers."
