Carl Stone, audio sampler extraordinaire, at the Cliburn Recital Hall -- one more night!

I got to hear Carl Stone's set last night, as presented by local producing outfit OTHER ARTS. It was awesome fabulous, and I was jettisoned to other worlds/words as I sat listening to Stone's electronic aural improvisations. Highly recommended.

[Thanks to producer, Herb Levy, for daring and caring to offer some great music events here in Cowtown, which probably would never be presented otherwise. Here's the promo blurb that Herb sent out via email this week. Get on this man's email list today...]

Just a quick reminder that Other Arts is presenting two concerts by live computer music pioneer, Carl Stone this weekend.

Using a MacBookPro running the software suite Max/MSP, Carl creates his music by cutting, splicing, layering, distorting, and otherwise digitally altering samples of music by popular, classical and world music artists. He's presented his work on every continent except Antarctica and these are Carl's first performances in North Texas. You won't want to miss this chance to hear him.
