Drew Daniel

I started making 4-track noise cut-ups and playing scrap metal percussion in a hardcore band in highschool in Kentucky. In college I joined the hundred-member-strong Young Inspiration Gospel Choir (as lone atheist member), then got a sampler and started sequencing, and met my partner M. C. Schmidt and learned how to edit audio with computers. Together we are the musique-concrete / electronic pop group Matmos. As a member of Matmos I've released over eight albums and collaborated with Terry Riley, Marshall Allen, The Kronos Quartet, Zeena Parkins, So Percussion, Antony & the Johnsons, David Tibet, Wobbly, John Wiese, and Bjork. I also make house music as The Soft Pink Truth. I'm not, generally speaking, an improviser, but I’m going to try to do my best. Thanks for listening.
