Pie Eye Collective is the solo project of Matthew Gordon, whose debut album ‘Salvation’ processes elements of ambient, broken beat, dub-techno and hip hop through a spectrum of tape saturated synthesis. With the album released via Alberts Favourites this Friday, DMC World caught up with the genre-melding electronic musician.

Pie Eye Collective - Flibbers feat. Hector Plimmer


For anyone not familiar with you, please introduce yourself and what you do.

I’m Matthew Gordon and I make music as Pie Eye Collective. I’m from Bristol and I currently live in London. I produce electronic music on my own and I’m also in the bands of Hector Plimmer and Rosie Turton.

How would you describe your music?

I hope my music is equally intellectually and emotionally stimulating. I think the way I use polyrhythms and my approach to sound design and mixing is distinctive.

Please talk us through your debut album ‘Salvation’?

Salvation is a collection of music I’m very happy with and very proud of. Each track on the album explores a singular idea in three forms – the music, track titles and accompanying symbols are designed to be analogues of one another. I wrote, produced and mixed the record on my own, apart from two tracks made with my friends Hector Plimmer and MettaShiba.
