about

Monoton was founded in 1979 by hypermedia wizard Konrad Becker as an art project that underwent various transformations and collaborations in its exploration of psycho-active sound. A pioneer in experimental electronic music, Becker continued to break new ground in electronic media. In 1994 he co-founded the Institute for New Culture Technologies/ t0, and became Director of Public Netbase, a legendary center for digital communication culture. An initiator of World-Information.Org, a cultural intelligence provider, he continues to be active as artist, researcher, writer, interdisciplinary event designer, organizer and producer. Recent conceptual ventures include the Global-Security-Alliance.Com project.

Since the late 70's, early 1980's, Monoton and the "Institut für wissenschaftliche Sensation" (Institute for Scientific Sensations) have been working on meta-mathematical structures, natural constants and resonance patterns in models of "bionic" psycho-active automat music. Research setups, installations and long-term experiments range from electro-acoustic representations of square roots, powers and periods of n, to explorations of Pi, Fibonacci sequences, Feigenbaum-Numbers, Magic Squares and others.

This CD contains distinguished electronic soundscapes related to mathematics and psycho-acoustics research made from 1981 to 1983 with analog synthesizers and micro-computers, including a Commodore 64. With many materials never released or rarely available, six of these Eight Lost Tracks see the light of day for the first time. Only Ich Weiss Nichts, appearing here in a rmx version by Mr Becker, was released in 1981, on an EP, Monotonprodukt 04 and Mutation Waltz on the 1982 sampler Q.E.D.
