Matmos: creating music out of the mental language

 
Within the landscape of contemporary electronic music, Matmos is an ensemble that has managed to stand out through mere innovation. The release of each one of their records responds to a programmatic conception. For The marriage of true minds (2013), they made parapsychological experiments on several test subjects. They basically tried to transfer what they aimed with this record to those subjects, and then, they collected what those subjects thought they received. I know, it sounds delusional to a certain degree. But the materialization of the project is rather interesting. The marriage of true minds may seem to have an abstract profile, but its solid tracks also holds some sort of narrative. Matmos continues to inject excitement into the electronic music scene, which is something that I, as fan of the genre, feel obliged to celebrate.

This is a live performance of Very large green triangles
