Go For A Spin

In tonight’s exciting post we’re exploring the weird and wonderful world of Matmos. In particular we’re going to be taking a closer look at their latest offering, an album which is built using the sounds of a washing machine. Yes you heard me, a washing machine.

The album consists of one 38-minute-long track, described in a press release as depicting “an exploded view of the machine, hearing it in normal operation, but also as an object being rubbed and stroked and drummed upon and prodded and sampled and sequenced and processed by the duo”

To be honest, the music is far better than I would have expected given the theme. Complex stuff, it has hints all sorts of things in there, off the top of my head I get smacks of Amon Tobin, The Books, Stomp, and Fridge.
