A curious interactive musical instrument featuring some unexpected components. Supported by Without Walls.
Tonefloat is full-fat sonic spectacle based on a mobile musical milkfloat – featuring a computer controlled percussion battery of tuned milkbottles, DIY sound generators & interactive devices.
The soundscape generated during performance ranges from abstract minimalism and gentle melodics to mash-up exotica and dadaist dancehall.
The show is well suited for promenade or static performance, as either a main attraction or support, and can run for minutes or hours.
Tonefloat won the popular vote of the *Peoples Choice* at the UKs first *Art Car Parade* in Manchester, September 2007.
The Galvonium has been commissioned by Without Walls for touring in Summer 2009.
