Laptop Music

« previous episode | next episode »

Saturday, April 02, 2005

Composer and radio producer Carl Stone builds his electronic compositions from natural sounds, acoustic instruments, and even extracts of popular music reconstructed electronically. With the aide of certain musical software programs such as Max/MSP, Stone not only draws on the possibilities provided by music software to compose his works, but he succeeds in rendering the technique invisible. He visits New Sounds to present recent works for laptop computer, many of which were released in late 2002 by the French label Sonore.
