On Friday, April 21 at 7:00pm CEST, Carl Stone, one of the pioneers of live computer music, will be at Fabrica for a free live concert titled AND OR, a solo performance of mostly new material including some tracks from a special Anniversary Edition releases coming out on Unseen Worlds later this year.
Carl Stone has been hailed by the Village Voice as “the king of sampling.” and “one of the best composers living in (the USA) today.”
He has used computers in live performance since 1986. Stone was born in Los Angeles and now divides his time between Los Angeles and Japan. He studied composition at the California Institute of the Arts with Morton Subotnick and James Tenney and has composed electro-acoustic music almost exclusively since 1972.
A winner of numerous awards for his compositions, including the Freeman Award for the work Hop Ken, Carl Stone is also the recipient of grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Rockefeller Foundation and the Foundation for Performance Arts.
His 3-LP release “Electronic Music from the Seventies and Eighties” on the Unseen Worlds label placed #1 in The Wire Magazine’s “Best of 100” 2016 Archival category (the follow up release the next year ranked #3).
In addition to his schedule of performance, composition and touring – he performed in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Asia, Australia, South America and the Near East – Carl Stone is on the faculty of the Department of Media Engineering at Chukyo University in Japan.

The event is part of the “Archaism” residency program curated by Carlos Casas.
