Toàn “Phonolite” is now available in store in digital format and cd.
It‘s a huge pleasure to present for the first time in the catalogue the talented French composer Toàn.
His third official album, Phonolite, is a little gem of eleven tracks and more than one hour of ambient and electroacoustic music.
There is something special in Toàn’s sound and his capacity to create, with a wide range of acoustic and electronic instruments, a unique world of colours and shades. His sonic paintings are visual collages of microsounds perfectly arranged and chiselled in a photography of the early twentieth century.
The name Phonolite comes from the Ancient Greek meaning “sounding stone” due to the metallic sound it produces if an unfractured plate is hit. Minerals and stones are therefore the concept of this outstanding album, a meditative piece of art that closes the trilogy after Histos Lusis and Volta No Vento.
Please be captivated by the frail elegance of Phonolite.
