B°Tong is the experimental drone project of Chris Sigdell. His work takes the listener from ambient isolationism and experimental microsounds to a noisy orgy of sounds. He takes samples from television, radio and film, which are then processed with recordings of his voice and others.
In a live-situation Chris Sigdell relies on instruments like microphone, metal-sheet, electric toys and kitchen utensils. The sounds made with them are fed and put through various effect-pedals giving him that trademark sound.

'Prostration Before Infinity' was inspired by the vast and still quite unknown space that surrounds us. It tries to capture the unfathomable concept of infinity and the meaninglessness of our endeavours within this finite yet endless universe. It plays with our quest for answers, our search for extraterrestrial intelligence. Maybe what they can hear is only gibberish, the distorted waves of our radio and televison broadcasts.
Using digital sounds, samples and recordings from outer space and field recordings, B°Tong aims to stimulate the listener’s fantasy and help tenter a state of mind where the listener can see.

'Prostration Before Infinity' is a soundtrack for the ‘inner cinema’, a journey to the inner eye.

Dreaming in sound.

Thinking in pictures.

Hearing with the third eye.
