Emma-Kate Matthews is a British architect, composer, musician and artist based in London. She is currently undertaking a PhD at the Bartlett School of Architecture at University College London, whilst also teaching architecture and design at the Bartlett School and at Oxford Brookes University. Her work explores ways in which spatial and architectural ideas can be explored through music and sonic media. Some of her pieces have involved spacing musicians around different parts of a building, to immerse the audience in sound. Emma’s solo pieces often sample found-sound which appears similar to instrumental and orchestral textures. She has released a solo album and two EPs, as well as several collaborations and remixes, and has had her work performed in venues including the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, the Southbank Centre in London, and LSO St Luke’s. She has also organised numerous exhibitions and symposia around the theme of sound and space, and regularly publishes her work in academic outlets.
