Matthew Herbert is a genius of his own kind. This time he announced the new album he recorded with sounds of a naked body. The tracks are all different length and are made from the sounds recorded within a 24-hour period.
“During that time, the body does everything that humans do. It eats, sleeps, washes, wees, trims, wanks, moves, poos and so on.
“Each of these musical pieces are poses, distillations or meditations where the body itself is the soloist and Herbert the frame and canvas.”
The tracklist is named accordingly:
01. is sleeping
02. is awake
03. is grooming
04. is hurting
05. is eating
06. is moving
07. is coming
08. is shitting
There isn’t much to say about this, except for that we are waiting to hear it. Due on July 1st.
Here is a look back to his Edible Sounds: he’s made music from pig’s life cycle, bullets hitting a pie, and a bomb explosion in Libya, also created “Edible Sounds.” Its first release is pressed on a tortilla wrap and is limited to 12 copies.
