Ben Matthews

WAM Nominee and Jazz Performance Honours graduate Ben Matthews is a pianist, band leader and composer with a passion for artistic expression through improvisation and composition. Since 2008 he has held various residencies at Perth’s prominent clubs, bars, restaurants and hotels, sharing the stage with many of Australia’s premier musicians or performing as a soloist. Improvisation in music is the art of composing in the moment with little or no pre-design. Because of this, it becomes a challenge unto the performer to create something that sounds inspired and rehearsed despite a lack of preparation. In this risky performance environment, Ben Matthews takes to the stage to present a set of improvised music, drawing influences from jazz pianists (Herbie Hancock, Hiromi Uehara), movie soundtrack composers (Joe Hisaishi, Nobuo Uematsu, John Williams) and neo-classical music. His aim is to provide the audience with a unique performance of storytelling and emotional expression through the piano.
