Text by Oxtail Recordings:

"A head-spinning vision of a cybernetic future, Voltage Scores is the second full-length album by Brooklyn-based synthesist and educator Matthew Ryals for Oxtail Recordings. This time around, he brought a free jazz mindset to the modular synthesizer and went deep, cultivating a daily practice over the course of more than a year, and a process that allowed these pieces to bloom in a focused yet free way.

The results --recorded live --combined generative patching with free improvisation and unfixed forms. Unusual yet organic shapes, shifting tempi, and percolating sequences all come together in a kaleidoscopic sound world where the only constant is change. during these explorations (each track includes its take number in the title) --except for the euphoric album opener “suitcase with a mountain in it,” which features cellist Clarice Jensen (Bjork, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Max Richter).

--

All tracks recorded live with no overdubs using a eurorack modular synthesizer (except # 1), April --November 2020. Written, performed, and produced by Matthew Ryals at home in Brooklyn, NY. Cello on # 1 by Clarice Jensen. Mastered by Angel Marcloid at Angel Hair Audio. Artwork by Gabriela Del Valle. "
