Local experimental luminaries come together for this special bill. Golden Retriever set featuring guests Luke Wyland and Holland Andrews.

As the duo Golden Retriever, Matt Carlson and Jonathan Sielaff have explored an ocean’s worth of sound. Primarily working with the intersection of modular synthesis and amplified/effected bass clarinet, the duo has done eight releases for labels like Thrill Jockey, Root Strata, and NNA Tapes. Their music combines an intense emotional immediacy and meditative focus with strong melodicism and an organic, naturalistic approach to experimental electronic sound. Rotations features the duo expanding their sonic palette to incorporate a full chamber ensemble. The results of this stunning collaboration are meditative, lush, and emotionally arresting.

Holland Andrews is an American extended technique vocalist, composer, clarinetist, and performer based in and Portland, Oregon and France. A multitude of dense vocal layers and textures are used to weave together a sprawling emotional tapestry to foster a space for both dissonance and intimacy.

Mojave Bird is Grace Peters' haunted, dreamy synth project.
