Now a fully fledged four-piece, Digitonal's first mini-album, '23 things fall apart', appeared this year on Toytronic Records. They are working towards a new form of live electronic music, often improvised, always wanting to be dynamic. Further recordings, remixes and live performances will surface throughout 2003. They are: Andy Dobson - production, keyboard and guitar; Sami Bishai - violin.

A H Pook: "An extremely well-composed pulse/gamelan piece quite in the tradition of Steve Reich's 'Music for 18 Musicians' era... Happily, Digitonal avoids straightforward plundering of Reich -- it's updated with some improv DSP squelches across the second half of the first movement and light electronic drumming throughout."
