Retune The Ratio


Following releases from Monsoonsiren and Groeni, Project Mooncircle continue with some deep pastoral explorations with the ‘Ton’ album by Michał Lewicki on digital and twelve-inch. Inspired by the relationship between aesthetic beauty and mathematics found in nature and embodied by the laws of nature such as Pi and the notion of the golden ratio, it’s maybe surprising that something which incorporates precise mathematics into its eleven tracks isn’t more rigid and formal, but instead it’s an engagingly complex work of warm earthy tones and nicely detailed spaces and rhythms. In making the album, Lewicki employed a range of random midi generators, midi delays, polyrhythms, pitch shifters, and more which were individually subject to detailed editing, each time achieving a unique, non-recurring and different sound onto which the tracks were built; something which has been called ‘a quasi-mathematical experiment in audio-randomization’; resulting in a pleasing mix of broad ambient pieces, lo-fi techno excursions and bubbling subterranean house music.
