Matt is a multimedia artist, musician, inventor and sculptor. He was a founding member of the dark ambient band Lab Report that included such diverse musicians as Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, Lydia Lunch and Chris Connelly. Schultz also invented the A.T.G. or Anti Tank Guitar and utilized this instrument with the Lab Report and Pigface. In total, Schultz has appeared on over 29 cds with 9 solo productions and 2 feature film soundtracks (Ivan's XTC and Snuffmovie) for Hollywood director Bernard Rose.
In 2010, Schultz manifested the esoteric and ancient fraternal order of The Division which reconstructed ancient spells and rituals reinterpreted aurally. Mantras is the first in a trilogy of discs that express all aspects of The Division.
