FACT Mag Interviews Matthew Herbert and Talks The End Of Silence

The inimitable Matthew Herbert talks to Fact Mag about sampling, dancing in night clubs in Italy, Libya and his most recent recording of The End Of Silence. 

The End Of Silence is based on a 10 second recording of a bomb being dropped in Libya.  The End Of Silence is a dark recording to be sure (featuring his 3 piece band), but in this time of template based, connect the dots music landscape, its a recording worth investigating if not just out of sheer curiosity.

It is far too easy to  jump to conclusions about the significance of the recording.  However, for me it was important to read that The End Of Silence is not a definitive political statement of any kind.  How could it be?  If Herbert is being logical, then it follows that the topic is far too complex to take a quick position on.  These are some of the points he makes in this interview and worth reading more about.
