American Guitarist and Composer Matthew Cochran is establishing a bold new repertoire for the guitar in the 21st century. His music combines elements of romanticism, minimalism and popular music, and No Depression raves “The pure emotive quality of Cochran’s music pulls you into its embrace and empties your heart with every note. Artfulness in composition is almost a trademark of Cochran’s work.” Cochran’s music for classical and electric guitars, electronics, and traditional chamber music are performed by a growing list of leading concert artists and ensembles. His works are published by Les Editions d’Oz.
