"btong is a project by Chris Sigdell, former member of the Swiss/German experimental trio N and guitarist/singer in Phased. btong's first 3" MCD was released by Verato Project in 2005. Since then he's released some more on various labels (Auf Abwegen, 1000+1 TiLt, Mayo Rec, P.B.B.) and played all over the EC - a.o. the Sinus Series in Basel, 2006 and the Ausklang Festival in Hamburg 2006 and two tours with One Man Drone project. btong, Tamagawa, Shit & Oldine - four bands, four men and one sound: droning, ambient noise. "Microsleep" is the new album on Verato Project. The music has been created on laptop using sounds and samples collected from natural sources and/or records, films, radio, etc. It was inspired by a trip to Australia and the road signs warning of the dangers of microsleep and advising to stop over at rest areas. The individual tracks' themes are those of fatigue versus sleeplessness, loneliness and long distances, dreams and nightmares of being on a road to nowhere."
