Matmos is M. C. Schmidt and Drew Daniel. 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. Since their debut, Matmos have released over nine albums. Their most recent album, Ultimate Care II, was released on Thrill Jockey records in 2016, and is built entirely out of the sounds of their Whirlpool washing machine.
