D. Turner Matthews

Artist-in-Residence

Turner Matthews is a musician, educator, and instrument maker. Turner’s music often combines his invented instruments, electronics, interactive lighting, and instruments you’ve seen before (often played in ways you haven’t seen before). Turner is a founding member of Triangulus Art Collective, has presented his work at universities across the country, and performed at venues such as Joe’s Pub and Madison Square Park (NYC). When not creating music, Turner is at The Columbus Metropolitan Library being an art and technology mentor for teenagers in the Downtown Columbus area. He is from Athens, Ohio where he received a BM in Music Composition from Ohio University in 2015. He graduated from Rutgers University in 2017 with a MA in Music Composition.
