Golden Retriever

You might not imagine that a 10-minute-long song composed of modular synth noises and the melodious bleats of a bass clarinet could be an engaging, emotionally walloping experience—but you'd be wrong. In the hands of talented and prolific local musicians Matt Carlson and Jonathan Sielaff of Golden Retriever, these two instruments become tools for testing the capacities of sound, digging diligently at the unity and universality that may lie beneath. Recordings such as 2011's Arda Viraf blend composed and improvised efforts that offer film score-like opportunities to get wrapped up in, and become rapt to, the deceivingly simple effects of harmonic reverberation. This evening celebrates the national release of their latest, Occupied with the Unspoken, on Thrill Jockey. MARANDA BISH
