Matt Carlson (Golden Retriever, formerly of Parenthetical Girls) premieres new compositions for analog modular and digital synth, voice and an array of time-lag effects. A bucket of burblings, he says. Fresh weird work, we guarantee. Lampo is thrilled to bring you Carlson, as he makes his Chicago debut and performs for the first time in four channels.
Matt Carlson (b.1983, Seattle, Wash.) is a composer and musician, and an active participant in Portland’s underground and experimental music scene. In his recent music, he uses his body and voice to interact with a large analog modular synthesizer. Current collaborations include modal electroacoustic compositions and improv with bass clarinetist Jonathan Sielaff as Golden Retriever, and sound installations, videos and performances in Oregon Painting Society, a five-person Portland artist collective. He has released a number of solo recordings, including the well-received LP Particle Language (Draft) and cassette Gecko Dream Levels (Gift Tapes), both of which appeared on several “best of 2011” lists. He has performed at the Tate Modern in London, Barcelona’s Primavera Sound festival, Seattle’s Bumbershoot festival and in Portland’s Time-Based Art festival. Carlson studied composition and electronic music at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle.
