The Tonoptik project was created in late 2014 as a result of a collaboration between media artists Yury Tolstoguzov and Alexander Inkov. They experiment with sound and visual configurations, basing their approach on the principle of live improvisation. Such styles as ambient, drone, glitch, techno are intertwined in their music, while the overall sound concept is in a minimalist aesthetic.

This album is a recording of improvisational sets made in studio in Saint-Petersburg.

It harmoniously weaves melancholic analog sound, urban soundscape, and the mechanical space post-anthropogenic world.

Performed with Minimoog Voyager RME + Octatrack & Prophet 8 + Octatrack
