Matmos
Matmos is M.C. Schmidt and Drew Daniel, aided and abetted by many others.Currently based in Baltimore, the duo formed in San Francisco in the mid 1990s, and self-released their debut album in 1997. Marrying the conceptual tactics and noisy textures of object-based musique concrete to a rhythmic matrix rooted in electronic pop music, the two quickly became known for their highly unusual sound sources: amplified crayfish nerve tissue, the pages of bibles turning, water hitting copper plates, liposuction surgery, cameras and VCRs, chin implant surgery, contact microphones on human hair, rat cages, tanks of helium, a cow uterus, human skulls, snails, cigarettes, cards shuffling, laser eye surgery, whoopee cushions, balloons, latex fetish clothing, rhinestones, Polish trains, insects, life support systems, inflatable blankets, rock salt, solid gold coins, the sound of a frozen stream thawing in the sun, a five gallon bucket of oatmeal. These raw materials are manipulated into surprisingly accessible forms, and often supplemented by traditional musical instruments played by them and their large circle of friends and collaborators. The result is a model of electronic composition as a relational network that connects sources and outcomes together; information about the process of creation activates the listening experience, providing the listener with entry points into sometimes densely allusive, baroque recordings.

Amanda Charchian
Amanda Charchian (b.Los Angeles) creates work with a feminine sensuality that is simultaneously epic and intimate. Amanda earned a BFA from Otis College of Art and Design in 2010, and has had features on her in publications such as New York Magazine, Vogue Italia, TIME, The Huffington Post, Interview Magazine, L’Officiel ART, i-D, Purple, and Turkish Vogue. Her editorial and commercial practice is alongside her work as a fine artist that she exhibits internationally. An exhibition of 2015’s “Pheromone Hotbox” at Stephen Kasher Gallery in NYC has evolved into the artist’s first fine art monograph on Hat&Beard Press/Dilettante Paper. Amanda lives and works between Los Angeles and London.Client list: Gucci, Chloe, Cartier, Vivienne Westwood, &Other Stories, STAUD
