Chris Herbert lives and works in Birmingham, UK. Working in a relative vacuum (beyond the reach of contemporary electronic music trends), his work focuses on intuitive composition utilising the extensive manipulation of found sounds and environmental sources. His compositions draw on a mixed musical palette which interweaves sounds sourced from field recordings and scavenged from domestic environments, augmented by short-wave, degraded cassettes, processed guitar and cymbals. He has also worked with sound installations and radio works. His recorded work has been released globally on a range of labels (including Room 40, Kranky and Low Point).
