モートン・サボトニック、ジェームス・テニーと言った大御所勢と作曲を学び、1972年から何処かユニークさを忍ばせた秀逸なエレクトロアコースティック、電子音楽を作り続けてきた本邦でもお馴染みのCarl Stone。東南アジアのフィールドレコーディングとストリート・カセットカルチャーのミックスをコンセプトに作り上げた面白過ぎる高速ループ作[Himalaya]。ロック、ディスコ、ヒップホップと、氏のボーダーレスな音楽ビジョンが一緒くたとなった音楽のポップアート。









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 (March 2019) 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.
