Electronic provocateur Matthew Herbert is no stranger to combining food and music: aside from creating some of the most delicious house records ever made, Herbert has previously released an album made entirely of the culinary sounds (2005’s Plat Du Jour), and most famously, an album derived entirely from sounds recorded during the life cycle of a hog (the PETA-condemned One Pig).
We’re used to seeing Herbert’s politically charged soundscapes divide many, and we’re sure that will be the case about this new release: 12 limited edition tortilla vinyl, as part of a new series called “edible sounds”, which has been commissioned by the Science Gallery London.
While there’s no news on when (or what) the next record will entail, we can only assume the debut release is influenced by the: viral “Mexican Hat Dance” internet sensation. All Herbert has said so far is: “It should be playable on a normal hi-fi, but is unlikely to be delicious”
We’re looking forward to the next course already…
