CARL STONE Electronic Music from the Seventies and Eighties

“a missing link, not only in the history of avant-garde and electronic music, but within the entire body of arranged sound (popular or otherwise).” – The Hum

“stunning …. full of purring drones that at first appear to hardly be moving, only to have them slowly slide and reveal infinite amounts of overtones…lovely, prickly, meditative, and maddening – Pitchfork

“The eight pieces ….on this three-LP collection of pioneering work by American electro-acoustic composer Carl Stone constitute an oft-mesmerizing two-and-a-half hours…(Shing Kee is) spellbinding.” – Textura

“Astounding …dizzying hall-of-mirrors refractions built from tiny fragments of Asian pop, American R&B and classical…. Stone’s resourcefulness and originality is unmistakable, and these sounds remain fresh decades later.”
Best of Bandcamp Contemporary Classical: November 2016

“It lights up our pleasure centres like a quid in a fruit machine….It’s all totally new to us and feels like somebody just opened a big skylight onto our listening lives, flooding us with new sensations……Not to be missed by anyone with a taste for innovative electronic music of the rarest order.” – Boomkat

Announcing: Realistic Monk

Realistic Monk live at ZKM, Karlsruhe

Realistic Monk live at ZKM, Karlsruhe

Realistic Monk – the title a simple anagram of the names of its members – is a new performance project from Carl Stone in collaboration with artist and composer Miki Yui. Our debut performance was in Düsseldorf 2015, at the Elektro-Müller Studio as part of the Open Space Festival. With the enthusiastic response from the sold out audience, we decided to continue performing together and are currently arranging performances in Europe for September 2016.

Realistic Monk concentrates on smaller sounds, sometimes at the edge of perception. We encourage concentrated listening as we create deep soundscapes that emerge out of voices, noises, field recordings and acoustic feedback.
