Carl Stone: Debut reissued, Guelaguetza in Austin

img  Tobias

On 5th of March, the Unseen Worlds label and Carl Stone will present the rendition of „Guelaguetza“, a work for electronic digital sound and images originally commissioned in 1996 by the (San Francisco) Bay Area Composers Forum. This piece will be of great interest to fans, friends and foes of Carl Stone alike, as it substantially differs from his trade-mark technique of using samples from one particular piece for his own work: „Guelaguetza“ taps into various sources and glues them together into a new entity.

„The work shifts seamlessly from sections in which dozens of short digital samples are rhythmically layered and sequenced in a dense web of sonic references to sections in which deal with a single artist or work in more depth.“, the organisors at the Austin Museum of Digital Art, host to the concert, announced. They also pointed to the shift in accompanying imagery: „When the work was premiered, the visual aspect of Guelaguetza was a series of static photographic images. The piece has recently been revamped and the images will now be dynamically transformed through a variety of digital manipulations that parallel many of Stone's signature audio processing techniques.”

For anyone interested in Carl Stone's as ever fresh and unfettered opinion on a wide range of new music-related issues, his regular blogs over at the New Music Box site should definitely be of interest.
