Haven’t heard Mr Matthew Herbert’s latest club extravaganza? If you haven’t been to one of his “One Club” launch parties last month you did miss something, but luckily enough for us all Mr Herbert is sharing & streaming this 2nd album of his “One” trilogy (club music made from club noises)….
Released under his own label “Accidental Records” the music on One Club was made from sounds created solely by the audience and the fabric of the Robert Johnson nightclub in Frankfurt on September 30th 2009.
The club was rigged with microphones, with some on the dancefloor, hung from the ceiling, in the dj booth, in taxis, the cloakroom, the bar and the toilets. Sounds recorded included people kissing, waving keys, beatboxing, singing and of course dancing. Every track of the project is named after people who were present that night.
And while waiting for “One Pig” (last piece of his “trilogy of singularities”) you may well to go and listen to Herbert + the London Sinfonietta’s “One Day” concert … a piece inspired in The Guardian’s 25th September edition. The performance will take place in front of an audience of 2,000 people on Saturday 20 November 2010 at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall (you may buy your tickets here).
And in case you can’t make it (or can’t be bothered to pay) … you can always listen to it later on as the concert will be broadcast in Hear and Now on BBC Radio 3 on Sat 25 Dec. Enjoy each and every way!
