The vocabulary of the Ultimate Care II, its rhythmic chugs, spin cycle drones, rinse cycle splashes, metallic clanks and electronic beeps are parsed into an eclectic syntax of diverse musical genres. The result is a suite of rhythmic, melodic and drone-based compositions that morph dramatically, but remain fanatically centered upon their single, original sound source.
In Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, Vancouver, Seattle and Houston Texas, Matmos will bring their 40 minute work of electro-acoustic exploration to the stage, with specially prepared video made by Matmos with Jamie Burkhardt.
Feel like you are descending deep into the innards of the machine. The washing machine. Come out…clean.
But that’s not all! Joining Matmos are two hand-picked other acts: Bully Fae (see post below) and Jeff Carey. Both of these short, sharp performances will be powerful worth-the-price-of-admission events in their own right.
