Tonik Ensemble is the musical output of Icelander Anton Kaldal Ágústsson. Exploring the vast expanse of the electronic spectrum, his soundscapes are a mix of electronics and more organic live instruments. It is a strong signature sound of contrasts: rich and stripped-bare, minimalist but intricate, finely crafted, and yet very instinctive. Together with an ever-evolving cast of talented collaborators, the output is deep, atmospheric yet soulful pseudo-techno.
Anton Kaldal Ágústsson’s album “Snapshots“ began with exploring the colour palettes various electronics and instruments along with playing around with the human voice. The first output was the song Imprints with Icelandic vocalist Johann Kristinsson. Other vocal collaborations on the album are Shipsi from Latvian band Instrumenti, Icelander Hörður Már Bjarnason who has been part of the Tonik live set since 2012 and Icelander Ragnhildur Gisladottir, who lend her voice to legendary debut album Maxinquaye by trip hop musician Tricky.
