Matthew Herbert


Matthew Herbert is a prolific and accomplished composer, artist, and writer whose range of innovative works extends from numerous albums (including the much-celebrated Bodily Functions) to film scores for A Fantastic Woman, Disobedience, Human Traffic and the Ivor Novello nominated Life in a Day as well as music for west-end theatre, Broadway TV, games and BBC radio. He has performed solo, as a DJ and with various musicians including his own big band and choir all around the world from the Sydney Opera House to the Hollywood Bowl and created installations, plays and opera. He has remixed iconic artists including Quincy Jones, Serge Gainsbourg, and Ennio Morricone and worked closely over a number of years with musical acts as diverse as Bjork and Dizzee Rascal. He has been sampled by J Dilla for Slum Village and another of his pieces (Cafe de Flore) inspired the movie by Jean-Marc Vallee (Dallas Buyers Club, Big Little Lies). He has produced other artists such as Mica Levi, Roisin Murphy, The Invisible and Eska and released some of these works alongside others on his own label – Accidental Records. Notable collaborators have included chef Heston Blumenthal, playwrights Caryl Churchill and Duncan Macmillan, theatre director Lyndsey Turner, musicians Arto Lindsay, Anhoni and writer Will Self but he is most 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 play The Hush was performed at the National Theatre, his debut opera The Crackle at the Royal Opera House and he continues to work on projects for the screen as well as the stage. His debut book called The Music is published in 2018 by Unbound. He is an artistic researcher at Canterbury Christ Church University and he is the director of the new BBC Radiophonic Workshop and in 2016 created the first ever universal musical sting to represent the BBC across all media and formats.
