Dsilton

DSILTON c Marie Jecel

BIOGRAPHY

The music of Dsilton consists of energetic arrangements in 31 equal temperament with modulating rhythms.
At Dsiltons current program, cycles of Georg Vogel & David Dornig are interlocked. Concerning the techniques of composition and the frames for improvisation all pieces share together complex grooves and the extended tonality of 31-tone tuning.

The repertoire shows a range from enharmonically entangled improvisation forms, 31-tone serial compositions to arrangements of processed field recordings. This enharmonic microtonal journey is played on special instruments: newly built 31 tone keyboards called Claviton, drumset and a new eight string electric guitar with 31 frets per octave.
