Powered by Audioscrobbler™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.

Fall and Winter of 2008 passed by CARLTON MELTON but Spring brought another session during the month of March 2009. This allowed the band enough material to release the album “ Pass It On... “ on their own label Mid-To-Late Records. The album was released in November 2009. Surprisingly enough, before the album “ Pass It On...” was released, CARLTON MELTON was able to have another recording session the last weekend of June 2009. This gave the band new material to have for future releases and also some bonus tracks for an upcoming CD release of the “ Pass It On...” lp that is tentatively scheduled for release Spring 2010 by the wonderful folk at Agitated Records in the UK.

In the midst of recording and releasing music CARLTON MELTON was also able to convince some of their friends to let them play a few live shows with their bands.

Stay tuned.... Long Live Dome Rock...
