Contemporaneous has released an album on INNOVA Records, entitled Stream of Stars—Music of Dylan Mattingly.[4]

On September 24, 2011, Contemporaneous presented the world premiere of Mattingly's Atlas of Somewhere on the Way to Howland Island, a forty-minute work for chamber orchestra inspired by Amelia Earhart's final journey, and about which he writes "Atlas of Somewhere on the Way to Howland Island is for all those voyagers between horizons; for those—past and present—who have flown into storms, for those floating dreamscapes out beyond the curvature of the sunrise, for those that reach escape velocity, for when even your endless arms can’t rearrange the constellations."[5]

Among the performers who have played his music are the Berkeley Symphony, the Del Sol String Quartet, Contemporaneous, Formerly Known as Classical, Soovin Kim, Ignat Solzhenitsyn, Sarah Cahill, Geoffrey Burleson, Mary Rowell, Other Minds, Symphony Parnassus, and the Da Capo Players.

Mattingly was a finalist in Orpheus Chamber Orchestra's “Project 440,”[6] a crowdsourcing commissioning project sponsored by WQXR. 2012 premieres included "Gone Gone Gone" for the Del Sol String Quartet,[7] "Invisible Skyline" for the Berkeley Symphony,[8] and "I Was a Stranger," commissioned by John Coolidge Adams and Deborah O’Grady for the Cabrillo Festival Orchestra.[9]

Joan Tower, John Halle and Kyle Gann. Mattingly is also a classics major at Bard College specializing in Ancient Greek and Latin, as well as a painter, poet, playwright, and pitcher for Bard College’s first-ever baseball team.
