released March 16, 2013

Two days of collective improvisation by musicians and non-musicians yielded this album which blends acoustic guitar melodies, female vocals, some synthesizers, dark ambient textures and percussion into a rich mixture of song and soundscape, sometimes reminiscent of early Cure (believe it or not), but also with a certain “ritual” flavour, and whiffs of the more subdued side of Swans. Experimental, yet accessible, this album documents the beauty of people who never played together before finding common ground in music.

Tonfall is an event hosted every year by artists’ collective Brezenstudio, responsible, among many other things, for many of Attenuation Circuit’s cover photographs. A two-day retreat in the countryside, Tonfall is a space for creative work centred around a collective musical improvisation, in this case including not only the instruments brought by the participants, but also sampled sounds from the immediate surroundings. Members of the Tonfall collective vary, in 2012 they included Birgit Merk/Eljara, Marc Fischer, Emanuela Ströber, Ralph Patrick Kopfmüller, Tommy Schmidt, Gerald Fiebig, and EMERGE.
