My name is Matt Dailey.
I am a composer, songwriter, post sound specialist and teacher.
I was born in Markham, Ontario, but grew up surrounded by my warm and loving family in a small town called Brantford. Early on I discovered my passion for recording things and making my own sounds. I have always loved music from a very young age and my passion led me to learn both piano and the guitar. If I wasn’t jamming to Xanadu by Rush on repeat I would write, record and dabble with effects to make unique and creative sonic spaces and show them to my friends. I planned and produced short films with a good friend of mine as a young teenager and we quickly discovered a knack for the art. We won a few awards in student film festivals and spent every available hour of our free time making movies and music. I graduated high school, completing an internship position writing for the local newspaper and a full year media technology course. I completed my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film Production at York University – and began creating and recording music for both personal listening and for the film medium. After working many professional film and audio gigs, I continued my professional development with a Bachelor of Education, to open the incredible world of media up to a new generation of students. I currently teach Communications Technology to secondary school students.
I plan to continue what I started as a young kid recording in his bedroom. I want to bring that same enthusiasm and ambition to my students, my music, and my sound-spaces. I love being apart of creative projects – and I love experiencing the ambition of others, and my students.
That’s about it… so far.
I run a full audio production home studio – and have the means to do both professional level editing and mixing of video, audio, and graphic design.
