Matthew Peters, a.k.a. Mad EP, originally was a cellist and later a producer of the Chicago Symphony radio broadcasts. He has been creating his unique soundscapes with live instrumentations, found sounds, and field recordings for the past six years in various studio and performance environments. His music has been featured on US college and underground radio stations as well as international broadcasts, including the CBC's Brave New Waves in Canada, JJJ's Soundlab in Australia, and on a "Best Of" series to commemorate the late John Peel (legendary DJ on BBC's Radio One in the UK). Refusing to be bound to any given genre or style, Mad EP's diverse range of live sets have made him a regular performer in many of New York City's clubs and art spaces. His recent releases on Ad Noiseam have garnered resounding critical acclaim worldwide.
Matt took up residence in the UK after The Psychasthenia Society's 2006 run at Collective: Unconscious Theatre. His music remains integral to Psychasthenia programs.
