Options March 1, 2012: Carl Stone on Radio Boredcast


As a musical instruction, "as slow as possible" has appeared in composers' scores for the past several centuries. In the past such a term had meaning because of the constraints of human abilities and the limits of instrumental mechanics. But in the digital world these constraints no longer exist. Instead the real problem to realize music "as slow as possible" in the digital age is due to Xeno's Paradox - anything that is slowed down can be slowed down still more. In this program I talk about the implications of musical slowness in the analog and digital ages and I present some music from as far back as ten centuries ago to the present day. (Carl Stone)

Carl Stone is one of the pioneers of live computer music, and has been hailed by the Village Voice as "the king of sampling" and "one of the best composers living in (the USA) today." He studied composition at the California Institute of the Arts with Morton Subotnick and James Tenney and has composed electro-acoustic music almost exclusively since 1972. His works have been performed across the world.
