Carl Stone

LIVE

LIVE COMPUTER MUSIC AT ITS BEST. 

The American composer Carl Stone will be at MIRA 2024 demonstrating his mastery with computer music.  He is one of the legends in the field and has been using computers as a musical instrument since 1986 and we will have the honor of witnessing him live.

Carl Stone is an American composer and one of the pioneers of live computer music. He was born in California and currently divides his time between Los Angeles and Japan. He studied composition at the California Institute of the Arts with Morton Subotnick and James Tenney, and has composed electroacoustic music almost exclusively since 1972, performing live with his computer as an instrument since 1986.

Known for his sampling and manipulation of recorded and live music, he has performed his works around the world: the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia, Australia, South America and the Middle East. In 1984 he was commissioned to compose a work for the Los Angeles Olympic Arts Festival, and his work has been frequently used by numerous theater directors and choreographers, multimedia installations, and film festivals, among others.
