Robert Worby presents music by Carl Stone and People Like Us, two contrasting composers of electronic music, recorded at Café Oto in London last year.
The programme includes in-depth interviews with the composers about their different approaches to composing, as well as the full sets performed in the concert.
Carl Stone is a senior figure in American electronic music, and a pioneer in live computer music. He samples short clips from existing musics, and uses this material to create a rich and constantly changing textural music.
People Like Us (aka Vicki Bennett) also samples other music, but her approach is collage-based and more like a dream narrative exploring a particular theme - in this concert, she performs her extended work called The Mirror.
