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. Their second release 'Seer' (out 24th March) for Thrill Jockey Records was recorded and assembled over the course of two years at the artists' studio 'Worksound' in Portland, Oregon. The relaxed timetable gave Carlson and Sielaff an opportunity to write based around new instruments and techniques and to spend considerable time meticulously editing the work. This extends the process employed on their Thrill Jockey debut 'Occupied with the Unspoken', composing and arranging using editing as a compositional tool.
