Monoton biography
Konrad Becker (Monoton)is a transdisciplinary artist and researcher in communication, philosophy of language . He is also the director of the Institute for New Culture Technologies. Since 1979 he published several works for sound installation and experimental intermedias. Monoton's first album called Monotonprodukt was written in 1980. It features psych-acoustic soundscapes for electronic loops, hypno-pulses and effects. His sound production can remind some works written by Conrad Schnitzler (Tangerine Dream, Kluster, Eruption) in the 70's and Asmus Tietchens' micro-tonal synthesized postmodernism. He recently published Blau-monotonprodukt (2006), an impressive album devoted to minimal-lysergic electronic textures. He is now considered as a legendary figure of experimental electronic pop music.

Review by admireArt
Prog Reviewer

— First review of this album —
3 stars Primitive in spirit but a bit sophisticated with the electronics.

Far away from the usual "cosmic" idiom found in this category, Monoton's (Konrad Becker, Austria) "Blau-MONOTONPRODUKT 02 26Y++", released in 2006, delivers a very personal effort, which relies mostly on its electronic drumming figures accompanied here and there with distant and attractive minimalistic melody or bass lines.

To offer some kind of referential, because by 2006, lots of musicians were already involved in this kind of electronic paths, let's go back to an early and clear starting point Conrad Schnitzler's own 1974 "Blau", without the random experimentation and roughness, but with the same careless "stardom" attitude.

A release which entire focus is low-keyed, minimalistic and detached, but good enough as to expect more, will certainly be hard to sound or rate beyond the infamous ***3 PA stars.

Thanks to Philippe Blache for the artist addition.
