WHAT'S ON / Matthew Herbert - One Pig
at The Queen's Hall
One Pig is derived from recordings made during the life, death and consumption of a single English farm animal. Provocative and challenging, One Pig explores our relationship with animals and food production.
Matthew Herbert is a musician and composer who works principally turning everyday sounds into music. He has collaborated with a huge breadth of musicians including Björk, Antony Hegarty and London Sinfonietta and remixed artists as diverse as R.E.M., Ennio Morricone and Quincy Jones. This performance is supported by Creative Scotland.
