One year. One animal. One live musical encounter with the food we eat but rarely consider…
The latest project from British electronic musician Matthew Herbert tells the story of a single farmyard animal from birth to plate. Over 12 months, Herbert recorded every detail of the animal’s short life including butchering, cooking and consumption. Nothing was wasted, as its constituent parts were recycled to create everything from pigskin drums to a specially devised ‘pig blood organ’.
One Pig is a compelling, unsettling and often beautiful performance that encourages us to reconnect with the realities behind our shrink-wrapped consumerism. Here Herbert and his band recreate this extraordinary album, complete with audio-visual composition and onstage cookery.
