Hey!Tonal is a project helmed by guitarists, multi-instrumentalists and sound designers Mitch Cheney and Alan Mills. An innovative exercise in drum improvisation and music composition, Hey!Tonal was originally released in 2009 on CD format and has now been remastered by Carl Saff and pressed to vinyl for the first time. Each member constructed the album instrument-by-instrument between 2006 and 2008 over a vast geographical area from NYC, Chicago, Florida, San Diego and Nantes, France. Main collaborators included Kevin Shea, Theo Katsaounis, and Dave Davison. The design of the release was coordinated by Computer Students and involved the work of artists Mitch Cheney, Julien Fernandez, Jeremiah Maddock, Evelyne Laube and Nina Wehrle.
Hey!Tonal is the second in Computer Students’ Anatomical Reissues series which devotes aesthetic and analytical re-examination to existing works. This unique album is available on white double vinyl, packaged in a superb gatefold cover complete with a massive poster, all housed in a unique heat-sealed metallic packaging.
