Watching the Wonderful Make and Do: Sonder AKA Memotone plays with his Guzheng, Clarinet, and Imagination

“Like a great art-house movie memotone’s music can take you places you never knew existed.” – Q Magazine on ‘I Sleep At Waking’, Memotones debut album

 

Sonder makes beautiful music, using items including piano, keyboard, clarinet, trumpet, zither, guitar, bass, drums, glockenspiel, organ, melodica and toy instruments, genrally looped on a Boss RC-50 loop pedal. Learn about his work as Memotone below the video.

 

Sonder AKA Memotone: Guzheng and Clarinet improvisation

 

 

Sonder’s work as Memotone, and independent work creating music for programs such as National Geographic, is made up of layered instrumentation over the top of field recordings, conversation, atmospheres and programming. They are then all tied up with live acoustic drums and binaural percussion, often using an MPC 1000 for live edits.
