Carl Stone is one of the pioneers of live computer music, and has used computers in live performance since 1986. He has been hailed by the Village Voice as “the king of sampling.” and “one of the best composers living in (the USA) today.” Stone 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. He released two albums in 2019, which were collectively named “Best of 2019” by The Wire, Pitchfork, Artforum, and Bandcamp,
Steven Sehman crafts experimental electronic music that combines analog synths, acoustic instruments, field recordings, spoken text, and digital media. His music address dualities, where ambient, minimal textures give way to dense, engulfing soundscapes. And floating landscapes are shadowed by anxiety, becoming a somewhere path for wanderers.
NICE TRAIN SOUNDS
Nice Train Sounds was created by Julian Stefanzick (Wawful) and Andrew Valdez (Slap Serif), and started as a radio show on KUGS, taking inspiration from plunderphonics and synth-pop, and eventually grew into a collaborative music performance.
The collaboration of father-son duo Bruce and Miles Hamilton. Their name is taken from Latin and translates as something like “lawn care”
