Robert Carl: The Time Keeper, by Molly Sheridan, is the featured article on New Music Box today. Sheridan interviewed the composer at his home in Hartford, where they discussed Carl's music, and his interest in time, memory, and space. Sheridan calls Carl "a particularly sensitive sonic observer of the world," and refers to the "distinct organic beauty and rich, encompassing depth" of his oeuvre. The composer talks about studying with Jonathan Kramer and about being influenced by Xenakis, as well as the role of global diversity in his music, among many other insights and interests.
