Matmos is Drew Daniel and M. C. Schmidt. Having previously recorded for a variety of labels, as well as their own Vague Terrain imprint, and having remixed everyone from Kid 606 and Bjork to Otomo Yoshihide and Labradford, the San Francisco duo exemplify the promiscuous creativity and formal aberration of the California experimental electronic scene.  In 2001, the duo began assisting Bjork on her albums, and also became a part of Bjork’s touring ensemble.

With their tracks strongly rooted in a tight, conceptual form of concrete ampling, their source materials have included the sounds of: amplified crayfish nerve tissue, the pages of bibles turning, liposuction surgery, contact microphones on human hair, rat cages, electrical interference generated by laser eye surgery, whoopee cushions and balloons, latex fetish clothing, and solid gold coins spinning on bars of solid silver, to name just a very few.
