Matthew Herbert and Underworld’s Karl Hyde have collaborated on a soundtrack
Written by worlddancefm on 19th June 2017
Underworld’s Karl Hyde has collaborated with Matthew Herbert (pictured) for a new album of music taken from a new stage show.
Fatherland is a play written by Hyde, Simon Stephens and Scott Stevens about “the complexities and contradictions of fatherhood” in England in the 21st century, according to the Underworld website.
The album goes by the same name as the play and features studio versions of the play’s music which include quotes from families from Stockport, Bewdley and Corby who were interviewed by the play’s writers.
Hyde said the sounds used on the album were anything that reminded them of their childhoods and fathers.
“That could be a football bouncing or a set of car keys, a whistle or the sound of a car engine purring. All of the sounds on the record came from digging up those memories.
“I invited Matthew Herbert to collaborate as I love his music and the way he thinks. He works incredibly fast–as do I. Early on, we decided we wanted to create our music from the sounds of objects that reminded us of our fathers and our childhoods.”
Fatherland is set to debut on July 1 at Manchester International Festival. The ‘Fatherland’ album is due out on June 30.
