Matt Logan - Dallas

Matt Logan (Dallas, Use HQ Headphones)

Recently Matt has been working with Professor Brainius (children's Science performer, his brother) on songs for the stage. The earliest of these tracks have already been heard by hundreds of thousands of young ears during The Professor's innumerable live performances. "Kid's music is a blast. ... Some genres have an air of pretense about them. You can drop all pretense and just have fun (working on children's music)." Matt also works on music for commercial projects, where custom music is required. Most notable of these have been projects aired on national TV and radio. He has a talent for making virtually any instrument he picks up sound good, and thus professes a mastery of none. He feels fortunate to be able to work within most any musical genre. "You can’t pin these tracks down into a single category. ... I get to play and practice almost every style of music. … I feel lucky in that way." Lately his most keen interest has been as a student of guitar. "Having grown up in Texas, you have those 'blue notes' in your blood." The tracks featured on this site span decades and are mostly proofs, practice sessions, or those not otherwise encumbered. The tracks here are original ML compositions in various forms of completion, although the occasional cover song may show up. Some production notes and comments have been added to many tracks within the "lyrics/details" area of each. If you hear something you like, please send a note.

What is music to you? What does it give you?

Creating music is a lot of fun. In my case at least half the time I am doing it purely for practice purposes; to learn a new software or hardware package. Getting better over the years has been really rewarding too; from a personal development perspective.

What is your music dream?

I want to finish more Professor Brainius songs.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

Somehow compel politicians to be fiscally responsible. Reign them in. Savings is made too difficult in the modern age because of government run amuck (inflation). Only those who study Econ. for years have a chance of growing their savings; meaning their investments outpace inflation. The alternatives are a savings account where you are losing 3% after inflation, or turning your money over to someone you don't really know. The average Joe doesn't stand a chance against the dual razors of taxation and inflation.
