Matt Katzbohen

Biography

Matthew Katz-Bohen attended the world-renowned LaGuardia High School of Performing Arts (the “Fame” School) in New York City, where he studied Piano, Violin and composition.

A native New Yorker, Matt has toured the world with his original projects Daddy (www.myspace.com/daddy) and GoonSquad (www.myspace.com/goonnyc).

Currently touring with Blondie, he just finished recording a new new album with them which features two of his songs.

He has backed legendary artists such as Ashford and Simpson, Jody Watley, Lady Miss Kier (Dee-Lite), John Cameron Mitchell (“Hedwig”), and Princess Superstar.

He produces, writes, programs, and plays keys and guitar... and he really likes the Thor.

Growling Lead (Reason Factory Sound Bank / Thor Patches / Lead Synths)

I use this patch with Blondie live for soloing all the time. I add portamento and delay. It really cuts through the band - will give guitarists keyboard envy. Also, I've found this patch works great for getting the synth solo sound from Michael Jackson's "Don't Stop Til You Get Enough", which we cover.

The Lead (Reason Factory Sound Bank / Thor Patches / Lead Synths)

A very nice creamy synthy lead. I use this one, with a phaser added, for the classic solo in "Call Me".

MS Feedback Bass 1 (Reason Factory Sound Bank / Thor Patches / Bass)

Great bass for that 80's hi NRG italo sound.

Pro 5 Poly (Reason Factory Sound Bank / Thor Patches / Poly Synths)

A great polysynth. With a bit of tweaking, you can get a perfect sounding intro to Cyndi Lauper's "All Through the Night".

PW Mod (Wind Controller) (Reason Factory Sound Bank / Thor Patches / Lead Synths)

I used this on the Blondie Track "What I Heard", with the filter 2 frequency turned up to 1.15 kHz. It's the huge synth lead in the intro and choruses.
