Artist: AMBARCHI, OREN, KONRAD SPRENGER, PHILLIP SOLLMANN
Title: Panama/Suez
Format: 12"
Label: A-Ton
Country: Germany
Price: $15.00
"A-TON is proud to announce Panama/Suez, the first EP by trio Oren Ambarchi, Konrad Sprenger, and Phillip Sollmann (aka Efdemin). The three multi-instrumentalists collaborated with the goal of creating subtly shifting musical passageways: sonic routes that run between continents of musical category. The results are two variations of kraut-y, groove-based post-techno that unfurl through mutating polyrhythms and chiming, ethereal guitar play; a rare moment of guitar and techno in deep embrace." - A-Ton.

Artist: INLAND & JULIAN CHARRIERE
Title: An Invitation To Disappear
Format: Double LP
Label: A-Ton
Country: Germany
Price: $34.00
"An Invitation To Disappear is the debut LP by British electronic musician Inland, aka Ed Davenport, and his first release for A-TON. Based on his soundtrack for a video installation by conceptual artist Julian Charrière, Davenport has recast the material and field recordings into eight tracks of rhythmically intricate electronics and spectral, ambient techno, inspired by Charrières visually striking, 76-minute tracking shot through a palm plantation toward a totemic sound system on full blast. Both the album and original soundtrack were created in response to the 200th anniversary of the eruption of Indonesias Tambora volcano in 1815, which plunged the world into darkness and caused a series of extreme weather conditions. At the time, the natural climate change crisis resulted in numerous global famines and became known throughout the northern hemisphere as "The Year Without Summer", with global communities forced to adapt to sudden radical changes in temperature and weather. An Invitation To Disappear offers a contemporary parallel, leading viewers and listeners down a seemingly endless direct path of gridded palms from dawn to dusk; a bio-commercial monoculture where ancient jungle once flourished. Light flickers between rows of fruit-laden trees and a distant fire burns in the undergrowth where the border between natural image and computer simulation breaks down. At the same time, formerly incoherent rumblings of sub-frequencies begin to transform into the contours of rhythm. This is reflected sonically in eight perspectives on the lush, synthetic jungle, made of myriad buzzing fauna, morphing melody and colossal bass-weight. All paths lead toward an apocalyptic dance floor, though speeds vary widely. Rhythms dissolve from straight to broken, and synth tempos operate by their own internal clocks (and logic). Juxtaposing industrial agriculture with rave culture, the album explores the industrialization and refinement of nature, and the new strange forms emerging from the synthetic grids of both. As Inland, Davenport has previously contributed soundtracks to other installations by the Swiss-born Charrière, whose artistic practice focuses on bridging environmental science and cultural history, often taking place in remote geophysical locations, including ice fields, volcanoes, and radioactive sites." - A-Ton.
