Description

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 complete with liner notes from Tim Rutherford Johnson, Robin Rimbaud, and Stone. Electronic Music from the Eighties and Nineties presents the soothing, hallucinatory side of Stone's slow-evolving, time-bending composition. While you can't always identify the source, you can hear that his sounds come from somewhere, and that there is a "correct" or "complete" version of them in theory; and so you 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" 23-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. Its 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.
