About

Matt Borghi is a singer/songwriter, ambient guitarist and producer of ambient music soundscapes fumbling towards self-actualization through song, sound and story . He uses several different monikers, including: Ambient Soundbath, Manitou and Sunrain. This website is dedicated to his songs and songwriting.

For over 25 years, Matt’s songwriting had taken a backseat as he worked to make a name for himself in the underground ambient drone music scene; music that has been called ‘micro-symphonies tinged melancholic nostalgia’. This work has inspired in songwriting recordings as you can hear. Much of Matt’s music is performed in a style he calls ‘Ambient Guitar’, but he also uses synthesizers, field recordings and other sound sources to craft his musical soundscapes. With a passion for musical improvisation and a belief in the healing, restorative powers of music, Matt directs his meditation practice and free-flowing creativity into all of his work.

Matt’s has had a variety of musical projects through the years including his drone ambient recordings which have been featured on Echoes, Music from the Hearts of Space, NPR, BBC and CBC, his IDM group with childhood mate, Michael Goldapper, KOSIK , and his ambient guitar work with saxophonist Michael Teager. Matt’s also recorded under the pseudonyms, Manitou, Sunrain, PK Bird and Olagra. Matt’s music has been featured on Hypnos Recordings, Slobor Media, Valley View Media and Ghostly International.
