Baltimore, MD

An experimental duo originally from San Francisco, Matmos incorporates odd, unusual, and ‘found’ sounds into their rhythmic pop music. The sounds are almost recognizable; they range  from the sound of cards shuffling to a frozen stream thawing in the sun. Yet M.C. Schmidt and Drew Daniel transform these quotidian, vaguely familiar noises by layering them with traditional music instruments. The couple has worked with Bjork on a number of albums and have toured extensively in Europe. They are electronic musicians who will take advantage of PRAVA’s quadraphonic, surround sound system to play their music.
