Drew Daniel and M.C. Schmidt comprise Matmos, whose music appeals equally to the cerebral and the instinctual. Their first work for Thrill Jockey is The Ganzfeld EP, which takes as its starting point a series of experiments having to do with ESP; a new full-length album, The Marriage of True Minds, will follow next year. I checked in with Daniel and Schmidt at their Baltimore home to talk psychic research, concept art, and much more.
