Tonwelle is my name as musician as well as the name of the project itself. This is also the name of an ancient track of Klaus Schulze's production Wahnfried. Many years ago I started listening to german electronic music pioneers like Ashra, Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze, and it was not only listening to this but loving it and diving deeply into this world of strange sounds and rhythms. Now, with the aid of iPhone and iPad and Ableton Live on the Mac as well it turned out for me to become a musician and starting to produce my own electronic tracks and really going back right to these roots of musical experience from my youth.
So here is the result of exploring musical machines of the real world like Korg's Kaossilator or Kaoss pad as well as virtual synthesizers like Waldorf's Largo, NLog or FAW's Circle and many others. And, of course, many of the new music machines on iPhone and iPad, to mention Moogs fantastic Animoog, Nano Studio, Tempo Rubato's nLog etcetera.
There is also a great affinity to Jazz, especially to the music of great Miles Davis. So I started composing or improvising some Jazz tracks too.
Another kind of a sub project is to make generative music, which is music based on patterns or little sequences an then played by random or following certain rules. Ableton Live gives you a lot of facilities to let the computer play this way.
Hope you will have some pleasure listening to this stuff and, please, drop comments.
