Matmos intentionally wraps noise-adjacent electronic collage art and contemporary composition into a wild mode of pop-techno. Melding usual sound sources with cerebral, often absurdist ideas, the music of Matmos inspires deep listening and contemplation of everyday sonics, with a possibility of laughter and tears.
Sonic collage on unusual instruments and electronics, a conceptual blend of abstract electro pop, musique concrète and minimal techno
