STONE, CARL - ELECTRONIC MUSIC FROM THE EIGHTIES AND NINETIES (2LP)


"-Gatefold LP jacket -New liner notes from Tim Rutherford Johnson, Robin Rimbaud, and Carl Stone. -First time vinyl collection for some of Carl Stone's most beloved tracks from the 1980s and 1990s, and the first ever release in any format of "Mae Yao". For Fans of The Caretaker, Elysia Crampton, Editions GRM, Oneohtrix Point Never, Ryuichi Sakamoto. Following the widely acclaimed 3LP collection, Electronic Music from the Seventies and Eighties, Unseen Worlds has compiled a second, 2LP collection of favorite and unreleased Carl Stone works. Electronic Music from the Eighties and Nineties presents the soothing, hallucinatory side of Stone's slow-evolving, time-bending composition. While we can't always identify the source, we can hear that his sounds come from somewhere, and that there is a "correct" or "complete" version of them in theory; and so we can hear when they are being changed. What drives Stone's music is the flow that he draws out of those differences: the way an Indonesian gamelan morphs into a chorus built from one female vocalist over the course of "Mae Yao"'s twenty-three minutes, the surprise emergence of a Mozart chorus out of the synths and skip-glitches of "Sonali," or the slow, ambient evolution of "Banteay Srey". "Woo Lae Oak," issued in a single side edit for the first time, is an exception. It s samples - a tremolo string and a bottle being blown across the top like a flute - are simple in the extreme. Yet the Stone locates the inherent emotional properties of the sounds and takes them into unexpected expressive territory." (label info)
