Monolake is an open project dedicated to computer-generated music, founded in 1995 by Berlin-based Robert Henke and Gerhard Behles. Mined from their stellar release Polygon_Cities, "Digitalis" and "Plumbicon" are two discrete techno entities: "Plumbicon" is more obvious; the straight bass drum, a slightly acid-inspired theme and hypnotic hi-hats build up the most rave-like Monolake track so far, including massive chords constituting the monumental finale. "Digitalis" in its raw digital beauty has been completely realized using one single electronic instrument, a Synclavier II, built in 1983. Creating sounds with this machine is a time-consuming non-real time process, and the result is a deep and multi-layered track, where long sonic movements evolve over a deep and massive beat.
