Matt Borghi is a Michigan born & bred musician and producer. Deeply inspired by Detroit and the Great Lakes, they are frequently reference points at the center of his work. The last few years have found Matt performing a style of guitar he calls ambient guitar. Matt forged his distinctive guitar style by fusing his classical guitar studies, the jazz improvisation theories that he learned while attending Goddard College, Brian Eno’s ideas about ambient music and the idea of John Cage and Erik Satie. With a passion for musical improvisation and a belief in the healing, restorative powers of music, Matt makes each live performance of ambient guitar unique and relaxing, so you’ll never see the same performance twice.
