SOUND ROOM XCVIII
Tonoptik project was created in late 2014 in St. Petersburg. They experiment with sound and visual configurations, basing their approach on the principle of pattern improvisation. Such styles as ambient, drone, glitch, noise and techno are intertwined in their music, while the overall composition is mainly designed in a minimalist aesthetic. Tonoptik has participated at numerous international festivals in Russia and Europe. In 2016 and 2018 the project was nominated for the Sergey Kuryokhin Award in St. Petersburg and in 2017 won MADATAC08 Award in Spain.
