Tone Dialing’s music has developed into an idiosyncratic language, combining elements of free improvisation, minimalism, and the aesthetics of “glitch” electronica. The trio originated in 2000 with weekly performances at Amsterdam’s alternative ASCII Internet café – blending their sounds with punk hackers tapping keyboards in the background. Stretchy chord landscapes, hesitant guitar picks, subtle feedback effects, sampled drum noises, and analog synth textures are the ingredients for Tone Dialing’s trancey interactions. Dijkstra, Pallesen, and Heather’s carefully structured improvisations often develop slowly with a delayed sense of drama, and respect beat and melody as important musical elements.
