Mouse on Mars, Matmos, Horse Lords

Doug Fir Lounge
830 E Burnside St.
 

[ELECTRONIC EXPRESSIONS] This show brings together two of the more quietly influential duos in electronic music for one glorious night of weirdness. Mouse on Mars has been perfecting an indelicate balance of glitchy beats and warm-water dub since 1993. The German duo’s most recent effort, last year’s Parastrophics, uses toasting and rapping in the mix, as if remixed from a vintage Jamaican sound-system bootleg. Matmos also loves a good dance beat, but at the service of a conceptual construct. Its new LP, The Marriage of True Minds, was created via experiments where the two tried to psychically transmit the theme of the album to people in isolation tanks. Samples of the people singing or describing what they “saw” were then turned into vivid musical expressions by the pair.
