Artist Profile: Ghost Toning

Ghost Toning (Washington, DC)

A solo project of Jeff Bagato (aka DJ Panic), Tone Ghosting features a unique homemade instrument he invented himself: playing vinyl LPs with small hacksaw & electronic FX, magnifying, modifying, & energizing the small scrapes & squeaks to create a complex musical vocabulary. The patented "Tone Ghosting process" includes looping these sounds, reformulating them in frenetic live dubs, & adding freeform vocal madness and intuitive drum machine percussion. Tone Ghosting creates a unique sonic universe somewhere between the attack of power electronics & the complex mind-body games of electronica & non-idiomatic free improvisation.
