Many of his songs and albums are pretty great. He has an album about food that raises awareness about industrial agriculture, eating animals, and the sounds of a kitchen -- Plat du Jour. Around the House is another album I love; it's a play on words about both house (classic proto-techno) music and the 'found sounds' that Herbert samples from a modern domestic setting, aka a house. For anyone who loves Bjork's Vespertine, he was a producer of that and was basically a part of her band at that time, programming beats, rhythms and some percussion, I think. Then there's Bodily Functions, which is made from all human sounds like snapping fingers, heart beats, hands smoothing across skin. His organic approach to making music was something that really informed me about organic architecture as I started to segue into learning more about organic gardening. I suppose it was key in understanding 'organic' as a concept. If your music inspires your cooking and your gardening, or vice versa, yes, give Matthew Herbert a try.
