Tone Science Module No​​​.​​​1 Structure and Forces (DiN​​​:​​​TS01)

by Various Artists



Introducing a new sub-label, Tone Science, from the DiN label.

DiN was initially set up in 1999 by well known UK synthesist Ian Boddy to bridge the gap between the analog music of his heritage and the emerging digital possibilities of the future. Tone Science is set up to feature artists and performers working in the field of modular synthesis. The first release “Module No.1 Structure and Forces” is a compilation album featuring nine artists from different musical backgrounds with the common thread being that all the tracks were composed entirely with a modular synth system.

The album opens and closes with the ambient soundscapes of two tracks by DivKid and Matthew Shaw who run the well respected Modular Podcast. Boddy himself follows the opening track with an extension to his original Tone Science album with another aleatoric self-playing composition in “Tone 6”. Paul Lawler and Nigel Mullaney are both heavily involved in library music and soundtrack composition and their two multi-layered compositions showcase the cinematic possibilities of the modular synth world. The remaining four tracks are more rhythmic in nature with the beautiful ambient washes of “If Wishes Came True” by Scanner leading into the hypnotic ostinato patterns of “Ghatam” by Richard Scott. French Buchla wizard Lyonel Bauchet ramps up the intensity with an elegantly constructed pulsing track before Chris Carter (Throbbing Gristle) ends the rhythmic proceedings with the grimy, dubby bass powered “Frieze Relief”.

Tone Science Module No.1 Structure and Forces is the first of a series of releases.
