B°TONG is Chris Sigdell, former member of German experimental industrial group NID (1995 - 2005). With B°TONG he reaches for the nether regions of experimental ambient sound and established himself as an acknowledged professional soundscape artist. His music is a choice of dark, brooding layers of sound, high-pitched tones and weird electronic sounds that give birth to images of darkness and tranquillity, the solitude of an icy polar night or the equivalent of an underwater journey in a bottomless pit. To create these imaginary soundtracks to the inner eye, he uses samples and field-recordings, which he processes in his computer-programs together with recordings of his own voice and/or other vocal samples. There are no hand-played instruments involved. In a live-situation the computer is taboo - Chris Sigdell uses microphone, metal, electric gadgets and various kitchen utensils. The sounds thus generated are put through various effect-pedals giving him that trademark B°TONG sound, which has earned him the nick-name “dronelord” by Aquarius Records.
