Here is a little bio, so you know more about me (mainly covering my work in computer music):

Dr Matthew Yee-King is a senior research fellow in creative computing at Goldsmiths College as well as a computer music composer, performer and researcher who has released his solo compositions on Warp and Rephlex records. He has a DPhil in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence from Sussex University, wherein he investigated techniques and applications of automated sound synthesis. His musical work covers a range of styles, from the use of agent based live improvisers and live coding techniques to more straight ahead electronic dance music. Recently, Matthew’s software was featured on Jazz Line Up on BBC Radio 3 in September 2015, where it performed live, autonomously alongside British alto sax player Martin Speake at the Wellcome Trust. His pieces ‘Livecoding SuperCollider and alto flute’ (featuring Finn Peters) and ‘The Matthew Yee-King simulator’ (featuring a simulation of himself, Finn Peters and Paul Hession) were both included in recent annual anthologies from the Computer Music Journal.
Other notable activities include a series of international performances alongside live coding pioneer Alex McLean, chairing the workshops at a recent SuperCollider computer music symposium in London and working with composer Finn Peters in the Arts Council funded Music of the Mind project.
