Chester Winowiecki – Metamorphoses

The latest TONEBURST release is available.

https://toneburst.bandcamp.com/

Dedicated to everyone caught in the act of becoming.

Recorded live in my home studio in February 2022. Performed on a Monome Norns Shield controlled by a Shbobo (Ciat-Lonbarde) Shnth. Amplified through a custom built 4 channel PA using a selection of resonant objects attached to speakers and audio transducers.

Thank you to fellow Tone Burst artist, Colin Drake, for making this album possible by creating the Norns/Shnth library and writing the script “Grainzer.”

Thank you, Cara O’Brien, for never letting me give up or present anything but by best work.

Very special thanks to Phil and Barry at Tone Burst for all their hard work, support and positivity.

Graham F – Halo

< kat no.27 >

Halo is a noir patchwork of generative soundmasses. Sonic elements rearrange themselves and unfold according to their own internal logic. Revealed are themes of alienation and anti-idealism.

Included is a DIY PCB of the EMF Pingler, a detector of invisible signals and ghosts. A noise device that picks up on its environment and makes sound when it is passed through electromagnetic fields (EMFs). The PCB itself features beautiful designs that make it a worthwhile trinket for those who may not want to solder.

As with all TB instrument and DIY PCB releases, if the EMF Pingler is used in your music-making please share the results with us. ‘Toneburst wishes to publish sound creations made by other makers.’
