Carl Joseph Stone, February 10, 1953) is an American composer, primarily working in the field of live electronic music. His works have been performed in the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia, Australia, South America, and the Near East. Stone studied composition at the California Institute of the Arts with Morton Subotnick and James Tenney and has composed electroacoustic music almost exclusively since 1972. In addition to his composition and performance schedule, he is a faculty member in the Media Department at Chukyo University in Japan. Stone utilizes a laptop computer as his primary instrument and his works often feature very slowly developing manipulations of samples of acoustic music, speech, or other sounds. Because of this, as well as his preference for tonal melodic and harmonic materials similar to those used in popular musics, Stone's work has been associated with the movement known as minimalism.

He has collaborated frequently with Asian performers, particularly the pipa player Min Xiao-Fen. Beginning in the early years of the 21st century, Stone began to compose more frequently for acoustic instruments and ensembles, completing a new work for the San Francisco Bay Area-based American Baroque. Stone served as president of the American Music Center from 1992 to 1995, and was director of Meet the Composer/California from 1981 to 1997. He also served as music director of KPFK-FM in Los Angeles from 1978 to 1981. For many years, Stone has divided his time between San Francisco and Japan. Read more on Last.fm.
