Danny Boyle) which opened to critical acclaim February 2011, their score being nominated for an Olivier Award. In the same year, they also provided the score for the National Theatre of Scotland and Frantic Assembly’s award-winning “Beautiful Burnout”.

Matthew Herbert is a prolific and accomplished musician whose range of works extends from numerous albums (including the much-celebrated bodily functions) to Ivor Novello nominated film scores (life in a day) as well as music for theatre, TV, games and radio. He has performed as all round the world from the Sydney opera house to the Hollywood Bowl.

He has remixed iconic artists including Quincy Jones, Serge Gainsbourg and Ennio Morricone and worked with musical acts as diverse as Bjork and Dizzee Rascal. He has produced other artists such as Roisin Murphy, The Invisible, Micachu and Merz and released some of these works alongside others on his own label - Accidental Records. Other collaborators include chef Heston Blumenthal, playwright Caryl Churchill 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 2012 album ONE PIG followed the life of a pig from birth to plate and beyond and his most recent acclaimed work THE END OF SILENCE was made out of just one 10 second recording of a bomb exploding in Libya.

He is relaunching an online Museum of Sound and is the creative director of the new Radiophonic Workshop. His debut play, as a writer/director, The HUSH, opened at the National Theatre in 2013 and his opera The Crackle opened at the Royal Opera House in April 2014. He is an honorary fellow at the University of Kent.

Matthew has just released "The Shakes", the first album under the name HERBERT since 2006's Scale and the acclaimed Bodily Functions before that. The album deals with intensely personal issues such as raising young children against a backdrop of an increasingly unstable world and, amongst other things, utilizes the sound of used bullets and shells from eBay as part of its soundscape. Herbert himself suggests that the record can be seen as a treatise on how “music helps to motivate, provide respite and divert us from the challenges of the everyday”.

Beth Orton

When musicians talk about getting back to their roots, it’s usually an excuse to pull out a battered old acoustic to create some bare bones music. In Beth Orton’s case, going back to her roots meant something very different. 

Having relocated to California a couple of years ago, Beth began experimenting with a series of electronic loops that would eventually come together as her career-redefining new album; a record inspired both by the wide-open nature of Los Angeles and the spirit of Beth’s earliest recordings (electronic work with producers like William Orbit, Andrew Weatherall and Kieran Hebden as well as groove-based music with Red Snapper).

Co-produced by Beth and Andrew Hung (Fuck Buttons), Kidsticks reframes Beth’s unmistakable voice inside ten pure, audacious, playful and kinetic songs. A resolutely focused album, it represents a rare chance to hear an established artist get plugged in and completely rework the songwriting process with wide-eyed, open-minded glee. 

Beth Orton has been one of the most unique and beguiling voices in music for the past two decades. Her debut LP - Trailer Park - pioneered a synthesis of electronic and acoustic songs to huge acclaim. The follow up - Central Reservation - brought international success and the Brit Award for best British female. Further albums like the Jim O’Rourke produced Comfort of Strangers and 2012’s Sugaring Season deepened the breadth of her craft (Sugaring Season was described by Pitchfork as "ten songs of sweet resilience delivered by a voice of seemingly effortless expression”). Kidsticks - Beth’s sixth album - takes a glance back to Beth’s past whilst staring confidently into a bright future. Kidsticks is out now on Anti.
