Operative, Bee Mask and Matt Carlson

Philadelphia's Bee Mask (aka Chris Madak) is an ambient-music producer of exacting tonal adventurousness and a generator of some of the most transporting drones to which I've ever levitated. He's matched in compositional excellence by Portland's Matt Carlson (of Golden Retriever), who's a synthesizer player capable of extraordinary dynamics and textural range. I recently compared Carlson's Particle Language LP to Conrad Schnitzler's Rot, Gil Mellé's Andromeda Strain soundtrack, and Morton Subotnick's Silver Apples of the Moon. Carlson's is some of the most riveting aural abstract expressionism happening today. DAVE SEGAL
