Introduction: Matt


My name is Matt Javanshir; I'm one (of two) people who will be producing the sound and music to Opifex Entertainment's Project SMRF game.

A bit about me: I have been playing the piano for just about as long as I can remember (my hand barely being able to span an octave); largely being influenced by Classical and Baroque music. During my days of studying this eventually crossed paths with my love of technology and video games and before long I was composing and experimenting with all sorts of genres, be it for a specific project or simply a "video game inspired" piece for personal enjoyment.

I have since written music for indie PC games, Blackberry games, podcasts and more. My music is available to listen to over at

Aside from music, I'm a huge video game enthusiast with a ton of games that I'd consider to be amoung my favourites including (but certainly not limited to) The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Super Smash Bros, Shenmue 1 and 2, Assassin's Creed, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Super Meat Boy, Portal 2, Splice, Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Super Mario Galaxy, Fallout 3, Skyrim, Red Dead Redemption...I've actually just realised that compiling such a list is pretty futile - suffice to say I LOVE all kinds of games, big or small, old or new. Podcasts also consume much of my listening time (there just aren't enough hours in the day to listen to all the awesome podcasts and music that is out there!). I also love TV and Film (who doesn't?) - I wouldn't say that I love a specific genre, but Sci-Fi seems to be a recurring theme with me. Quantum Leap, Sliders, Farscape, Lost are all among my favourites. I also love the Simpsons; I do not think a day goes by where I haven't quoted the show at some point.

So that's a little bit about me! I hope you enjoy my contributions to future Opifex Entertainment projects!
