Music Matters

Matthew Herbert (he/him) is an award-winning composer, producer, and writer whose range of innovative works extends from more than 30 albums, including the much-celebrated Bodily Functions, to scores for the Oscar-winning film A Fantastic Woman, as well as music for the National Theatre, TV, games, and the radio. He has performed solo, as a DJ, and with various musicians including his own 21-piece big band and 100-piece choir all around the world — from the Sydney Opera House to the Hollywood Bowl — and created installations, plays, and operas. He has remixed iconic artists such as Quincy Jones, Ennio Morricone, Serge Gainsbourg, and Mahler, and been a long-time collaborator of Björk. He is best known for working with sound, turning ordinary or so-called found sound into electronic music. His most celebrated work ONE PIG followed the life of a pig from birth to plate and beyond.
