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.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
