Biography

Finally, a psychedelic band that successfully crosses generations, appealing equally to old school bong-bubblers, kinky krautrockers and the new school of psychedelic stooges. Can-style jams, trance-inducing drones and Ummagumma-era Pink Floyd ambiance may be the foundation here but these improv jams easily break from the tether of their influences and soar righteously through the stratosphere. Freak out!

The band CARLTON MELTON formed along the Mendocino County coastline in Northern California on the weekend of July 17th, 2008. The idea to play live, loud, improvised, experimental, instrumental, psychedelic music in a geodesic dome had been discussed for many years prior to this date. The opportunity came to fruition after the Dome was completely rebuilt and the acoustic sounds inside were fully realized.

The music is recorded live inside the Dome to analog and digital sources using carefully placed omni-directional microphones. All music is improvised in the sense that no one really knows who or what is going to be played at any given time. The result of the July 17th, 2008 session was a self-released CD-R entitled “Live In Point Arena”. After this session the band decided that it would be great to try and make this gathering a seasonal event… time permitting.
