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 has used computers in live performance since 1986. Stone was born in Los Angeles and now divides his time between California and Japan. 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 in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Asia, Australia, South America and the Near East. In addition to his schedule of performance, composition and touring, he is on the faculty of the Information Media Technology Department, School of Information Science and Technology at Chukyo University in Japan.



Since 1980 Hammer has operated in a plethora of under-the-radar units such as Dinosaurs With Horns, Joe & Joe, and Points of Friction, but ‘I Love You, Please Love Me Too’ is about the best entry portal to his multi-dimensional world. With a plunderphonic, Cagean appreciation for the infinite textures of AM radio and “mid century sci fi” Joseph weaves arrestingly hypnotic and experimental 3D collages which have utterly commanded our attention. The systolic stream of looped samples bends time and space with a vividly visual and enveloping intimacy, wrapping listeners in an improvised vortex of acousmatic teases and reference points which seem to fold into an inert aural blind spot point just out of view behind the ears.
