John Robert Matz is a performer, arranger, and award-winning composer with a knack for anything from sweeping orchestral works to intimate jazz ensembles.


Classically trained, he graduated with honors from Elmhurst College, majoring in music education, but with an emphasis on brass and vocal performance. As a composer, he is known for his work on video game scores as diverse as the BAFTA-nominated "Gunpoint", "Artemis: the Spaceship Bridge Simulator", and "Rodina", as well as being a regular musical contributor to YouTube's "RocketJump" (and now Hulu's "RocketJump: The Show"). In addition, he is also active in writing concert works for band and orchestra. As a performer, he has sung in Chicago's Symphony Center, New York's Carnegie Hall, and on multiple "Final Fantasy: Distant Worlds" concerts, including the "Distant Worlds II" album recording, and he plays trumpet in several Chicago-area musical ensembles, including serving as section leader in the Elmhurst Philharmonic Orchestra. In his spare time, he enjoys worrying about his growing Steam backlog, reading good books, and removing cats from his MIDI controllers.


John Robert has just released the award-winning score for the long-awaited "Fossil Echo", and is currently working on music for the upcoming games "For the King", and "Dad by the Sword".
