Meet The Curator: Matt Jenko
Hi my name is Matt, but my friends call me Matt. I’m on the wrong side of 27, definitely feeling my age, but never felt happier and more content than I do at this point in my life. I’ve been through some rocky patches (who hasn’t) and lived to tell the tale, and boy do I gots some stories.
When I’m not putting my soul through existential hell in my day job, I’m making music, drawing pictures (and making them move in time to the groove, playa), and writing about everything from high-concept sci-fi rigamarole to my thoughts on the intricacies of the music industry.
I’ve been curating for musicto for bloody ages now, and am certainly one of the old guard; my fellow curators are like my family. I love belonging to this tribe of like-minded cats.
If you’re into music that paints vivid sonic landscapes, then we’re going to be the best of friends. And if you’re a Westerosi or from Rivia, hmu: I can talk about that shit all damn day.
To escape isnʼt to run away. To escape is to allow the mind a vacation, space to relax and recalibrate. Those with a healthy appreciation of the fantastical are better able to handle the material, and if travel broadens the mind, just imagine what unbridled escapism can do!
Music to Escape Reality is the cinematic score to your psychological journey. Each piece of music has been chosen for the richness of its auditory landscape, the vividness with which it depicts the rolling planes of the imagination, and for its potential to guide you as you suspend disbelief.
This playlist is a portal to disengage with what is real and explore the infinite unknown, because to escape isnʼt to run away.
To escape is to be free.
