Radio Boy (UK)

When it comes to sampling the sounds of everyday life and integrating them into electronic music, Matthew Herbert sets the standard. His appearance at MUTEK 2001 revealed his romantic, humane side. This year, however, as Radio Boy, he shares his disdain for the blatantly careless behaviour of corporations (McDonalds, Gap, Starbucks...) whose products are conceived with the sole purpose of increasing corporate wealth. Choosing specific products from each company, he 'consumes' them in highly original ways, thus appropriating them to create a forum for rebellion and a refusal to accept a manufactured world. This truly entertaining performance is not only a refreshing perspective in the often apolitical electronic music scene, it is also a unique reaction to the current state of our world. Radio Boy's performance at MUTEK 2002 is an exclusive Canadian appearance.
