Profile Matthew Rowan (1979, Northern Ireland) studied composition with Brian Irvine and Greg Caffrey at South Eastern Regional College on the ND in Popular Music course. He then moved to Newcastle upon Tyne and enrolled at Newcastle College where he completed an HND in Music Production under Martin McAloon (Prefab Sprout). The natural progression on to the BMus in Popular and Contemporary Music at Newcastle University placed him in the care of composers Agustín Fernández and Bennett Hogg (with much appreciated help from Martyn Harry and Matthew Sansom) who guided Matthew through a Master’s degree, and then a PhD in Contemporary Composition which was examined by David Clarke and Peter Wiegold. Matthew also teaches composition at Newcastle University, and was music studies editor for the inaugural issue of online journal e-pisteme.

Matthew is currently Associate Composer with Tamesis Ensemble.
