Herbert is as solid as a rock in these times of “borderless digital arbitrariness,” as the German newspaper “Die Zeit” chose to describe his work.
Between programming mistakes and the conceptual stringency of his PCCOM manifest, between accidents and score, between deus ex machina and the honest handmade: whether Herbert plays with his Big Band project or he remixes Moloko, Motorbass, Atom Heart or DJ Food, whether he scores films or paints the musical backdrop for fashion shows – Herbert’s transgression of genres and the search for innovation is never just art for its own sake.
