New Album Now On Sale – Listen Here

There’s a dizzying good new @carlstone album coming on May 20; it’s no spoiler to say that admirers of Stone’s jumpy digital pop fantasias should not hesitate. Steve Smith, Night After Night

Wat Dong Moon Lek is Stone’s latest distinctive, Characterful, and playful take on sound collage, a followup equal to 2020’s thrilling Stolen Car…There is an infinite quality to the work…much alchemy here, each track feeling fizzy and alive with potential directions. There are so many moments that make me want to dance, or stand up and applaud. It’s clever, effervescent and gloriously fun. – The Wire, June 2022 issue

September 15 Open 8pm Start 8:30pm Santa Cruz CA Indexical

Thursday September 15 2022 Open 8pm Start 8:30pm
Come to think of it, this might be Carl’s Santa Cruz debut, as he comes into town for a performance at Indexical the site for radical and experimental work. Indexical works with musicians and other time-based visual or performing artists to bring about new projects that push the boundaries of the discipline. Carl will perform a solo set of new work and for the second set will be joined by Eric Theise, handling projections for the premiere of a new collaboration. Theise combines strategies from experimental film & animation, color theory, the Light and Space movement, and concrete poetry with open data and open source software to create digital maps that behave in ways never intended by the original developers. Opening the evening will be Santa Cruz’s own Samantha Bounkeua (RogueViolin) .
