ABOUT THE MUSIC

Carl Stone premiered his composition DARDA, using multiple layers of the Shomyo chanting of vocalist Makiko Sakurai. Shomyo is the ancient Heian period form of chant associated with the Tendai sect of Buddhism. Also on the program were new additions to the Acid Folk series, which Steve Smith of the New York Times described as “a powerful stimulant with lingering euphoric effects.”
