A folk musician for years, Matthew Young became interested in both popular electronic music and serious computer music in the early '70s. From his sonic experiments he eventually recorded and privately released his debut offering, Recurring Dreams, in 1981. Young's experiments with electronics expanded, as did his interest in folk, blues, and modern classical music. On his second record, Traveler's Advisory, released by his Mt. Rose label in 1986, he wed all three, incorporating hammered dulcimer, banjo, vocals, Casio, and drum machines. Included among his own compositions was a cover of Michael Hurley's "Werewolf" that the songwriter later claimed was one of the better versions of his tune. Both albums were reissued by Yoga/Drag City during the 2010s. ~ Thom Jurek
