1939 ENSEMBLE ARE AN INSTRUMENTAL QUARTET FROM PORTLAND, OR. WITH AN UNUSUAL LINE-UP: DRUMS, VIBRAPHONE, GUITAR, TRUMPET & SYNTH. DRAWING INFLUENCES FROM KRAUTROCK, JAZZ & NO WAVE, 1939 ENSEMBLE MOVES BETWEEN OMINOUS DISSONANCE NOISE TO SHARP BOMBASTIC BEATS. THE QUARTET FEATURES JOSÉ MEDELES, DAVID CONIGLIO, JOSH THOMAS & KNATE CARTER.
Golden Retriever is the duo of Matt Carlson (modular synthesizer) and Jonathan Sielaff (bass clarinet), two musicians who blur the line between sounds created electronically and acoustically. The pair formed Golden Retriever in 2008 and began to develop a project in the tradition of American experimental electronic composers like Alvin Curran & David Behrman. Golden Retriever creates music that is structurally complex while remaining inviting and emotionally dynamic.
