Matt Morton is a composer, multi-instrumentalist, and engineer/producer from Columbus, Ohio. His feature-length scores include 'Scaring the Fish' starring Max Casella and Anthony Rapp, John Urbano's Panama documentary 'Beauty of the Fight', Todd Douglas Miller's Emmy-winning Sundance documentary 'Dinosaur 13' (Lionsgate, CNN Films), and 'Apollo 11' (NEON, CNN Films).

He is also the founder of the music production company Studio 651 Ltd. and its publishing division, Studio 651 Publishing (BMI). Matt's most recent project was scoring the feature-length documentary 'Apollo 11'. He wrote, orchestrated, performed, recorded, and mixed all of the original music for the film, as well as the teaser trailer and the theatrical trailer. Every instrument and effect used in the score existed at the time of the mission in 1969 including the Moog modular Synthesizer IIIc (reissue of the 1968 version), the Binson Echorec 2 (tube echo), the Mellotron (early keyboard sampler used by The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, etc.), and the orchestra. The Soundtrack is out digitally now on Milan Records, with a vinyl release scheduled for July 19, 2019 (the day before the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing).
