nna050: matt carlson all moments lp

nna is proud to present our 50th release, matt carlson’s all moments long-playing record. where 2011 s particle language lp acted as a study in texture and density within experimental synthesizer music, all moments finds carlson engaging with the more traditional musical materials of melody, harmony, and rhythm, calling to mind his work as one half of portland, or duo golden retriever. the pieces on this record range from shorter pop études to longer, more open improvisatory synth studies, retaining a sense of playfulness and expressiveness within a highly focused and calculated framework.

recorded to four-track cassette and primarily hand-played with very little-to-no auto arpeggiation, all moments captures an often-overlooked warmth and human quality in electronic music, emphasized further by carlson’s use of modal and tonal vocal studies, electronically transformed by his use of the vocoder. the result is a well-rounded collection of colorful, exuberant electronic music.

mastered and cut by lupo at dubplates & mastering, berlin. artwork by jason traeger.

us release date: september 13, 2011

golden retriever was formed in portland, or. in 2008 by multi-instrumentalists jonathan sielaff & matt carlson, both long time participants in the city's potent music scene. focusing on the relationship of two primarily monophonic instruments (carlson on modular synthesizer & sielaff on bass clarinet), and utilizing layering with a deft balance of improvisation & composition, the duo has created an infinitely varied approach to their sound world: dense, spacious, overwhelming, soothing and completely alien in equal measure. after their debut release on root strata in early 2010 (a small run cdr) they continued to perform steadily in portland, slowly refining their dynamics and releasing a number of small-run cassettes and another cdr. we're extremely happy to be working with golden retriever again, and even more so to release their very first edition on vinyl.

'light cones' is unique in the golden retriever discography as it's their first release more akin to their live performances, with each of the lp sides consisting of one extensive track. both sides find the group exploring the various colors of their pallete. from the electronic bog that opens side a, to the more zoned out meditations of the first half of side b. sielaff's bass clarinet continues to be an anchor for the duo, with its lower organ-like register providing a wide earthly gravity for the layering of sound. carlson's modular synth responds with everything from soft bass throbs to bursts of high-end, slippery keyboard runs and electronic blinks of colored noise, all filling up the stereo field. when the two build pace in unison, their energies head upward towards a hot magnetic peak, merging into one indistinguishable mass of sound, brilliant and shimmering. the come-downs are also sweet. long dark passages bathed in echo and west coast twilight.
