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. Since that time, Matmos has been at the forefront of the electronic music and sound art communities and is celebrated for their inventive use of found and unexpected sound sources and the conceptual implications of their music. Marrying object-based musique concrète with electronic pop music, Matmos is internationally known for their densely allusive, yet accessible, and emotive compositions. Their most recent album, The Marriage of True Minds, was released in 2013 by Thrill Jockey Records.
The Matmos performance will open with new video works by Matmos collaborator and SFAI alumnus (BFA, 2006) Nate Boyce.
Beer Garden Host: Fort Point Beer Company
Fort Point Beer Company was founded in 2014 by brothers Tyler and Justin Catalana. The brewery resides in a historic Presidio building that was formerly used as an army motor pool. Building on the success of their five-year old restaurant Mill Valley Beerworks, they established Fort Point to experiment with a new spin on traditional craft beer varieties like a San Francisco–style IPA, a Kölsch-style ale, and a hoppy wheat beer.
Non-alcoholic beverages and a special dinner menu will also be available from the SFAI cafe.
