MATMOS will be visiting Metal as part of our international residency exchange programme in June. They are M.C. Schmidt and Drew Daniel, now based in Baltimore but also associated with the San Francisco music scene of the 1990’s.
Matmos playfully conjure electronic pop that circumnavigates music concrete, found sounds and the far fringes of experimental music. Their live shows are notorious in combining sound, video and live antics; often with an expanded ensemble of musical friends.
As well as releasing over eight albums they have collaborated with Terry Riley, Kronos Quartet, Bjork and Marina Ambrovic. Their most recent album The Marriage of True Minds, was released in 2013 by Thrill Jockey Records. You can see their full catalogue of work here.
During their international residency, Matmos will develop new ideas for NetPark, Metal’s Digital RnD project in Chalkwell Park.
