Food For the Ears

by Matthew Herbert

A fascinating project that constructs music out of sounds related to (and caused by) food and all of the things that are associated with it. Plat du Jour is Matthew Herbert’s project and while on the surface it is musical it is also political and he creates tracks that examine our relationship with the food chain. The web site catalogues the extensive recordings and process behind the project and it is a singular achievement. I love listening to it and it’s great to find out more about the food that we take for granted.
