Carl & Miki Yui, aka Realistic Monk perform at the Zentrum für Kunst und Medien (ZKM) in Karlsruhe Germany. Realistic Monk is a new performance the name formed by an anagraman anagram, formed from the names of the members. The duo focuses on sounds that are so fragile that they move at the edge of perception and encourage the listeners to listen very carefully. Our Karlsruhe debut!

Announcing: Realistic Monk

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 both June and 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.
