Matmos – Concrete pop

by

They’re friends with Bjork!

Now that I have your attention, please enjoy this bizarre experiment, that can only be classified as as a pop version of the musique concrète genre.

Undone

Alarm Call

In 1998, Matmos remixed the Björk single Alarm Call. Subsequently, Matmos worked with Björk on her albums Vespertine (2001) and Medúlla (2004), as well as her Vespertine and Greatest Hits tours.

Matmos gained notoriety for their use of samples including “freshly cut hair” and “the amplified neural activity of crayfish” on their first album and “recorded the snips, clicks, snaps, and squelches of various surgical procedures, then nipped and tucked them into seven remarkably accessible, melodic pieces of experimental techno” for their album A Chance to Cut Is a Chance to Cure
