Is this the spirit behind matrix recordings, and are there other reasons beyond this one for creating them?
Yes, mainly to polish a soundboard recording by adding in the audience and to make the instruments sound like they werent recorded in a room. And for the audience recording - to make the instruments clearer.

2. Pink Floyd
3. Metallica
