about

This Monotonprodukt is a CD release of the blau vinyl written and produced by Monoton in 1980. Re-mastered in 2006. It also contains 3 unreleased tracks from that period.
Since the late 70's, early 1980's, Monotonprodukt and the "Institut für wissenschaftliche Sensation" (Institute for Scientific Sensations) have been working on the transposition of metamathematical structures, natural constants and resonance patterns in models of "bionic" psycho-active automat music. Publications, installations and long-term experiments include among others electro-acoustic representations of square roots, potences and periods, Pi-factors, Fibonacci sequences, Feigenbaum-Numbers, "Magic Squares" and others.

Konrad Becker wrote : Monoton on a quest for the spirit in the machine investigated the representation of a numeric structure on resonance field level; numerical systems and mathematical nature constants as values and proportions for bionic sound. Not only natural constants and their sub-elements offered themselves for operational definitions, but any proportion of numbers, the musician with the calculator in hand. Regardless of the aspect of universal machinic patterns, the transcendence of patterns, the "de-programming" and the "deletion" or reactive conditioning was their interest in transformative music. Noise is a simultaneous chaotic superposition of all frequencies, and the hearing of "everything" and thus nothing at a time in the constant vibration of "monotonous simulation". It is on the basis of these subjective and oracular properties, that transformative music may be explained.
