American avant-garde composer/musician Carl Stone, as I wrote on Slog last year, “is a master of voice manipulation, shredding singers’ phonemes into mesmerizing and discombobulating mosaics of otherworldly intrigue. Sometimes his pieces sound like a pop artist's CD glitching out spectacularly, a manufacturer's defect alchemized into sonic art of the highest (dis)order.” Stone has been creating beautifully disorienting electronic music since the 1970s, and his most recent albums—Baroo and Himalaya—reveal no diminishment of his imagination. This music opens portals to bizarre realms rarely glimpsed. On his label Unseen Worlds' Bandcamp, Stone explained his process: “The pieces use a technique of time slicing that I first started doing back in the ’90s... wherein sound files are metaphorically shattered in time like glass and then reorganized into mosaic patterns.” Opening is Climax Golden Twins guitarist Robert Millis, a sonic shape-shifter, collagist, drone-meister, and archivist with a mischievous streak. by Dave Segal
