Matt Carlson, Michael Stirling, Doug Theriault; AakashRoot Strata
RS 101 LP
Long Playing Record
Aakash marks the debut recording of the Portland, Oregon-based trio of Matt Carlson (Golden Retriever), Michael Stirling (a disciple of the late Hindustani master Pandit Pran Nath and a student of Terry Riley), and Doug Theriault. Derived from live improvisational performances, the record finds Carlson's rich analog synthesizers joined by real-time processing of Stirling's lilting voice and Theriault's idiosyncratic guitar work and electronics. Dipping into a kind of liminal void, Aakash isn't just cosmic raga. It's a subtle journey; microvisions of inner terrain. Includes download code.
