Carl Stone December Noozletter – Tokyo, Tokyo and Tokyo


Greetings! I hope this finds you well. As we reach the final month of 2016, it’s hard not to be amazed at what a strange and discomforting year it has been, not only in global politics but also in the more rarified world of experimental and electronic music. In just the past few months we have lost several giants in our midst, such as Jean-Claude Risset and Pauline Oliveros. While I was a great admirer of Risset’s music and had enjoyed the several times I had met him in person, it is Pauline who I, like many others, felt a tremendous bond and now a tremendous loss. At 84, she was vital and active up to the very end, passing away peacefully in her sleep on November 24th. In death as in life, she always exuded a kind of gentle power, in control of her own destiny.

As unhappy as a lot of us as a group feel about the year, I have to say I have taken much personal comfort in the warm acceptance of my new album on Unseen Worlds, “Carl Stone: Electronic Music from the Seventies and Eighties” among the public and press. Our first pressing is almost completely sold out – new pressing on the way soon! – and the reviews have been stellar. Just a taste:

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

This album is available as a 3-LP set, or via digital download in multiple formats. Those of you who prefer CD format can burn-it-yourself. Available from www.unseenworlds.net/releases/electronic-music-from-the-seventies-and-eighties-f26a65db-7062-4dd6-9292-a4ae3571ba14

For live performance, three events in Tokyo bring the year to a close. It would be great if I could meet you at one or the other – or all three! Otherwise, let’s try to meet sometime in 2017, as plans are afoot for gigs in the US, Europe, Singapore and of course Japan. It might even be a great year, you never know!

September 2016 – Germany, Denmark and a new album release


Greetings! I hope this finds you well. Have you have had a pleasant summer? And for those of you in Australia, New Zealand or South Africa, winter? This month finds us once again in Europe, with performances in Germany and Denmark. Three solo shows, two duos with my favorite unit REALISTIC MONK (w/ Miki Yui) and a collaboration with smell artist Wolfgang Georgsdorf, in a Catholic church in Berlin. I’m excited about these of course, but I’m even more psyched about the upcoming 3-LP release of my early and unpublished music going back to the seventies and eighties, which will be coming out by the end of September on the Unseen Worlds label (also available in digital format.) More information about this release at http://www.unseenworlds.com/releases/electronic-music-from-the-seventies-and-eighties-f26a65db-7062-4dd6-9292-a4ae3571ba14.

Carl Stone presents his evening length work FUJIKEN


FUJIKEN was composed between 2012 and 2013 in Tokyo where Carl Stone resides for much of the year. The work blends field recordings made through Southeast Asia (Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia and Japan) with appropriated music mostly from street cassettes, processed and resynthesized. The work has no set structure and although some sections have been more or less determined as to their materials and methods of manipulation, the overall form as well as the smaller musical details are open and improvised. Field materials tonight might include recorded meandering on the Chao Praya river (Bangkok), a fire outbreak in Phnom Pehn, college sports practice in Toyota City Japan, and whatever else the mood might seek.

Steve Smith, New York Times:
“(Carl Stone’s) music was a powerful stimulant with lingering euphoric effects. Voices stretched like taffy were folded into ghostly choruses; the whine of a stringed instrument became a mosquito arabesque. Noises normally rejected, like surface scrapes and static bursts, provided fertile sonic lodes.”

Jonathan Gold, Los Angeles Times:
” Is Carl Stone celebrated today for his tendency to name his opuses after his favorite restaurants – Kong-Joo and Sukothai instead of Serenade or Sonata in C# minor? Perhaps. It makes the pieces evocative of a specific time and place, and hints at the trans-global origins of the source material, while maintaining an almost absolute level of abstraction. How did he arrive on bricolage as an aesthetic strategy? Feed him a glass of Suntory and he may confess that it may have arisen from a work-study job in the uncrowded Cal Arts music library when he was an undergraduate, a job that put tens of thousands of recordings at his disposal and countless hours in which to listen to them.”

January 2016 Noozletter – BANGKOK OAKLAND VALENCIA

Greetings! I hope this finds you well. Happy New Year! I’m looking forward to great things in 2016 with you. Let’s not let the prospects of a Donald Trump presidency or the complete obliteration of bluefish tuna darken our spirits. Remember, “It will all be OK once the music starts to play.” And in this case, the music – my music – will start to play right away in January, and with plans for events in almost every month of the year. You will certainly be glad you subscribed to this noozletter, receiving those sweet sweet up to the minute announcements about concerts, talks, reviews, publications and all things Carl, delivered fresh to your inbox..

Normally this (ostensibly) monthly missive would contain detailed announcements only for the month within which it is published. However, as several of next month’s events happen rather early on, and we have been known to (ahem) sometimes be a few days late in publication, I’m going to list up February events as well, even if some of the details have not yet been firmly fixed. Please keep your eye on my web-blog at http://rlsto.net/Nooz for further updates.

Which brings me to my web-blog itself. A new year means a total face-lift and in fact a total rewrite of the blog. Wow! Now concert announcements, photos and music clips are all in one handy container, and while I think it looks and functions pretty well, I would love it if you could take a spin around the pages and let me know your comments, criticisms and advice.

And now the nooz:
