Matthew Herbert has created a veritable sonic feast with a new performance using edible records.

Performing at The Guy's Chapel in London last week, Matthew spun a menu of aubergine, onion, celeriac, potato, ham, cheese, tortilla and sugar that had been cut and laser-etched with field recordings. The edible records were then fed to the audience at the end of the show.

The piece was commissioned by Science Gallery London for FED UP: The Future of Food, highlighting issues surrounding processed food, nutrition and waste.
