Matthew Herbert is an award-winning composer, artist, producer and writer whose range of innovative works extends from more than 30 albums (including the much-celebrated Bodily Functions) to scores for Oscar-winning films (A Fantastic Woman) as well as music for the National Theatre, Broadway, TV series (Noughts and Crosses BBC), games (Lego) and radio. He has performed solo, as a DJ and with various musicians including his own 21 piece big band and 100 piece choir all round the world from the Sydney opera house, to the Hollywood Bowl and created installations, plays and opera.

He has remixed iconic artists such as Quincy Jones, Ennio Morricone, Serge Gainsbourg and Mahler and been a long time collaborator of Bjork's. He has had work commissioned by the Royal Opera House, the BBC and Deutsche Gramophon amongst many others but he is best known for working with sound, turning ordinary or so-called found sound in to electronic music. His most celebrated work ONE PIG followed the life of a pig from birth to plate and beyond. His debut book The Music published by Unbound in 2018 and he is the creative director of the New BBC Radiophonic Workshop.

Matthew's online workshop will explore:
Different types of listening: philosophical, political, musical, technical
Working out different ways to record what it is we want to hear
Different strategies to edit/manipulate/compose/interact with whatever it is we've recorded
You don't need to be a composer to join this workshop - it's open to anyone interested in working with sound as a material. You'll work closely with Matthew, developing new ideas around sound, recording, composition and making, listening actively to sonic environments, exploring field recording techniques to collect site-specific material where you are and evolving new composition and production strategies. Finally, you will have opportunities to perform, broadcast, install and release the work developed via our in-house labels, radio station and network of performance venues.



WHERE AND WHEN?

This is an online course, but it involves realtime sessions and contact time with your tutor - it's not a "download these videos and watch them at your leisure" type of thing - it's a real workshop with live lectures, individual tuition, assignments and feedback sessions.

The schedule for sessions is as follows:

  • August 5 2020, 12:00 - 13:00 | Pre-course meeting
