Carl Stone December 2017 Noozletter Madeira & Tokyo

Greetings! I hope this finds you well. What, December is around the corner again so soon? It’s scary.

I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December,
A magical thing,
And sweet to remember:
“We are nearer to spring
Than we were in September.”
~Oliver Herford, “Hope,” in The Century Magazine, January 1914

How did it get so late so soon?
It’s night before it’s afternoon.
December is here before it’s June.
My goodness how the time has flewn.
How did it get so late so soon?
~Dr. Seuss

This Noozletter is to bring you up to date on my final activities for 2017. What a year it’s been, with performances as far flung as Taiwan, Norway, Madeira, the USA and naturally Japan. And of course there was also that most exciting and unexpected MacArthur fellowship!*

We are looking forward to any chance to see you in 2018, but meanwhile here’s information about what is coming this month. If there is any chance at all that I could meet you at one of these, I would be most glad.

Carl performs at the MADEIRADiG Festival, on the island of Madeira, situated equidistant from both Portugal and Morocco. Also on the evening bill, The Necks! The MADEIRADIG Festival is a unique adventure in extraordinary music. Each December the Portuguese island – celebrated as a ‘paradise island’ and ‘floating garden’ – is transformed into a hotbed of digital art and culture. This is an avant garde journey through the world of serious music. The festival lasts four days (December 1-4) and also includes Greg Fox, Maja S.K. Ratkje, Laraaji, Rhy Chatham and the Ectoplasm Girls

While the rest of Europe is cold and dreary, experience some of the most formidable avant garde musicians in the world and stay in a gorgeous design hotel located on a clifftop in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. This intimate festival on the mountainous volcanic island of Madeira features a stunning and unsurpassable line-up, a landscape to match and wonderful spring temperatures.
