MATTHEW BEJTLICH

Matthew (b. 1991) grew up in the quiet corn fields and pine trees of rural Massachusetts. He is a photographer, musician, composer, and data scientist with an interest in sustainability and storytelling for impact. He especially enjoys working across the domains of music, fashion, food, and the natural environment. His research exists at the interface of data science, experience design, human-computer interaction, participatory design, data ethics and data provenance, and creativity support tools.  
       For the past ten years, Matthew has been deeply invested in the global electronic music scene, producing electronic music as part of the audio-visual duo Dayspired. He is a current partner at Rhythm Section International (London, UK), where he is being mentored by record label founder Bradley Zero (DJ at BBC Radio 1, NTS Radio, Boiler Room). Soon he will also be exploring more minimal and atmospheric directions in solo work released under his own name.
       Matthew recently graduated with his MFA from Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) after receiving his MS in Data Science from Brown University. He was a graduate researcher at Brown’s Human-Computer Interaction Lab and the head teaching assistant for the class Machine Learning and Design. He is currently open to full time work and freelancing opportunities.

FORCE AND POSITION MIDI CONTROLLER

For my senior capstone project in electrical engineering, I led a team of five other engineering students to design a highly customizable position and force sensing MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) controller prototype for a small synth repair company based in Southern Maine called New England Analog. MIDI is a technical standard for digitally representing and transmitting sounds — it is used as a touch surface to allow the user to control a wide range of sound parameters (e.g velocity, pitch, and panning) base upon the force of the applied touch.
        Over the course of the year, my team developed and produced a working prototype satisfying the major requirement and needs of the customer. We presented the result in front of a panel of judges and industry leaders.
