DESCRIPTION

Composer Carl Stone, hailed in the Village Voice as “the King of Sampling” and “one of the best composers living in the U.S. today,” performs an evening of brand-new compositions. A resident of Tokyo, Stone has used computers in live performance since 1986. This rare Bay Area appearance will feature the U.S. premiere of Stone’s evening-length multi-channel composition DARDA, first heard in Tokyo in September 2009, and featuring the shomyo vocal chant of Makiko Sakurai. (Shomyo is an ancient form of chant associated with the Tendai sect of Buddhism, dating from the Heian period, 781–1192 CE). The evening may include an additional premiere. Listeners are invited to bring blankets and pillows and relax in the gallery space.

Preceded at 6 p.m. by one of our favorite KALX DJs spinning in the lobby, where wine and beer are available for purchase.
