Mat Ombler is a freelance journalist, copywriter and consultant specialising in the intersection of video games and music. His work for publications including The Guardian, NME, Washington Post, BBC and WIRED explores the cultural impact of video game music, and the business decisions and creative strategies underpinning gaming and music collaborations.
His passion for video game music stems from the important role that game soundtracks played in shaping his music taste. The Tony Hawk's Pro Skater games introduced him to metal and alternative music, which led to him promoting gigs and joining a metal band, where he shared stages with the likes of Hatebreed, Architects, Bury Tomorrow, and more.
