MATT COLDRICK: CREATIVE
Creative Communication Consultant
From Oct 2011 to about half past 2012 I worked with Kaleidio Communication Design in Melbourne.
Amongst many exciting projects,I worked as a consultant with Craig Lapsleys' team on Bushfire preparation concepts for Fire Services Victoria.
Viewing a problem across all stakeholder positions has been an essential part of learning about communication design.

Narratives and wordplay are now central to much of my work, either creating original pieces or editing and developing the works of others. I write lyrics,prose and poetry , often using this to form the narrative spine of a project .
Weaving music, sound and words is one of my favourite ways of working and this piece demonstrates how music can build an emotional dynamic whilst the words give the point of view . The sound design creates an effect on the voice to make airy and other-worldy.
Wind and Wonthaggi is a part of Elemental Journeys a project in development which looks at humanities relationship with the natural world through the filter of the elements. If the wind could speak what would it say ?
Record Producer- Ambient and Dance music
For several years I released ambient and electronica albums though my own label - although ambient music has changed since Brian Eno coined the phrase - I still love creating music that is about atmosphere and has an opacity about it that lets it live alongside or support other activities,mediums and moods.
Its not all ambient though….there's some light hearted Dub and banging Trance in there as well. :)
In 1994/5 I played guitar on Gabrielles 2nd album and then performed with her, taking on the role of co-md with Frank Felix . I spent the next 4 years recording and performing including many live shows on TV and Radio worldwide.
This period of work culminated in Gabrielles' BRITPOP AWARD.
