Matt Carlson: "Raindrop Garden"

Matt Carlson:

The modest bleep-bloop shower that opens up Matt Carlson's "Raindrop Garden" plays calm before the storm, eventually inundating a given set of ears with washes of single-tone hums, rhythmic white noise drips, and an improvised vocoder raga that makes melody and harmony just as central to the piece as texture. The Portland-based synthesist and one half of Golden Retriever had given what seemed more like a solo study with his previously released track "A Lock Against Oblivion". "Garden" brings out a cinematic and symphonic cooperation between Matt's many sounds.

Carlson's forthcoming LP, All Moments, comes out September 18th on NNA Tapes.
