MATTHEW HERBERT | One Pig

One Pig es el último trabajo de Matthew Herbert, editado la semana pasada en el sello londinenese Accidental Records. Bajo One Pig, subyace cierta asipiración documental que se cristaliza en la idea de recojer los sonidos de la vida cotidiana de un cerdo de granja desde su nacimiento hasta que llega al plato en tu cocina. Para la grabación del álbum, Herbert se ha valido de la captura de sonidos “sobre el terreno”, más algunos detalles armónicos de estudio, junto con instrumentos que él mismo ha creado con partes del animal, como un tambor hecho con piel de cerdo o un instrumento de viento que utiliza sangre de cerdo para funcionar (!).

Polémicas fuera, escucha One Pig y luego échale un vistazo a lo que Matthew tiene que decir sobre el álbum.

One Pig is the latest work of the Brit Electronica artist Matthew Herbert. The album was released last week by the londoner imprint Accidental Records. Herbert’s last LP is a proyect that – with a documetal approach – through sounds shows the chronology of a pig’s life. That is: from the very moment it is born in a farm to it’s slaughter. To record One Pig, Matthew Herbert has taken and sampled “in situ” a wide range of noises, added a few harmonic arrangements in the studio and, even, used a couple of instruments created by himself for the occassion like a drum made out of pig’s skin and a kind of flute that works thanks to the animal’s blood (!).

Take your time while listening to One Pig and dare to leave behind all the controversy that the LP has brought together. Then, check what Matthew has to say about his album.
