A friend has passed along an advance copy of Alan Rich's review of my Los Angeles concert that should be appearing in the LA Weekly later this week. I'll wait until it's online and then post a link, but I'm happy to say it's a real keeper, with a lot of great pull-quote potential. In addition to reviewing the concert, Alan mused a bit on my work over the years. Here's his closer: "One of my favorites among his great works is Shing Kee, one of "Four Pieces" on Electro-Acoustic; its material is a tiny phrase from a Schubert song, which he has sampled and reconstructed from the quiet throb of the piano at the start to the full blossoming of the phrase some 15 minutes later. What I hear in this music is two composers at work some 175 years apart: Schubert in constructing his eloquent phrase, Stone in delving deeply into the source of its eloquence. And what's most amazing is the way those two guys get along".

That's a great last line there, in particular. I used to be friends with Alan, and he's a great guy, and I wish I still saw him around.

Alan's no spring chicken, but he still seems to get out there and make the scene. He actually looks healthier now than when I was living in LA and saw him regularly, ten years ago.

Yeah, well, the last time I ran into him, we barely recognized each other, because he seemed to have lost all the weight I had put on in the interval.

Looks like I'm gonna be a guest on Crack o' Dawn, hosted by Barbara Golden, on KPFA, Jan 2nd midnight (officially Jan 3 - in other words Thursday late night or Friday morning depending on how you prefer to think about it.) I'll be yakking and presnting some of my recent stuff, both released and un. Listeners in the Bay Area can tune in to 94.1 mHz. Anyone can link to https://secure.transbay.net/kpfa/forms/0_aud.htm for an Mp3 stream (it seems they don't have RealAudio support at the present time.) /

That's great, Carl... we'll try to tune in from Texas!
