Kristian Gjerstad - Tones 1.0 12” Black Vinyl
Tones 1.0 is a record specifically made for the purpose of melodic scratching,
although it is not limited to just that; it can be also used as a production tool.
Think of Tones 1.0 as a synthesized toolkit that blurs the lines between live
performance and production.
Side A consists of 16 locked modulating tones (8 bass tones and 8 lead tones)
that have been recorded from various analog synthesizers. They were recorded
live while manipulating cut-off frequencies, resonance and LFOs to a click track
at 133.33 BPM. This gives the tones extra rich sonics and more depth while
being scratched. Each bass tone is recorded at middle C (C3) while each lead
tone has been recorded an octave higher (C4).
Side B consists of musical phrases, chords, drums, experimental tones and
skip-proof atonal scratch sounds, all of which have been recorded at 133.33
You’ll find a rich tapestry of ideas to choose from ranging from funk basslines/
chords and licks, soul chords and licks, drums, atonal scratch sounds and
experimental tones that create futuristic atmospheres. Major and minor 7th
chords follow the circle of 5ths so that they are all relative to each other,
perfect for creating music quickly. Once you’ve created a beat/sketch you can
then jump to the skip-proof atonal scratch sounds and solo over the top. Enjoy.
