Matthew Herbert’s new project One Pig is an album made exclusively from sound recordings made during a pig’s life, from birth to plate. Herbert was there, microphone in hand, as the animal was born. Continuing to visit it through its life, Herbert then documented its death, butchery and consumption, before making an album from the results. He also commissioned a series of unusual objects from the animal, including a pig skin drum, dye, paint, candelabra, and an instrument which plays the animal’s blood.
This is a remix by Micachu of the track ‘December’. Watch a short documentary made by Herbert about the album here
