Best of 2019

Carl Stone

Himalaya (2LP)

Label: Unseen Worlds

Format: LPx2

Genre: Electronic

In stock


Following his critically acclaimed collections Electronic Music from the Seventies and Eighties and Electronic Music from the Eighties and Nineties, Carl Stone quickly follows-up Baroo with a double-LP album of recent works, including the final section of Fujiken, his epic journey through southeast Asian field recordings and street cassette culture.
On all six tracks, composed between 2013 and 2019, Stone’s pan-global playground of looping synths and Asian pop culture remains as fertile as ever, digitally shattered into unimagined patterns and gestures, either through the MAX programming language or (in the case of Kikanbou) by generating live loops within an Elektron Octatrack sampler.
The title track is the first recorded release from Stone’s ongoing collaboration with the Japanese vocalist Akaihirume. Elsewhere new influences come from rock (the slow drum break of Bia Bia), disco (the Nile Rodgers-esque guitar riff Kikanbou) and hip hop (the frenetic percussion loop of Han Yan).
Their diversity only adds to Stone’s borderless musical vision, a world where rhythm becomes atmosphere, song becomes beat, and pop becomes art.
