TONE OF ARC
San Francisco producer Derrick Boyd aka Dead Seal, now Tone OF Arc a duo/band production with partner/vocalist Zoe Presnick have been making music for most of their lives, two of those special individuals possessed with a wide range of musical expression. Tone Of Arc brings a glimpse of real musicality to the underground tech house and indie house scene, something rarely experienced on the dance floor. In the studio they have carved an austere path of "Nuclear Winter" atonality and Skinny Puppy theatrics to create, what could be best described as, "other worldly". They also sing, play guitar, bass, and keys and it's this vast sea of musical expression that creates a sense of a Grand-Guignol cabaret for rivet heads. This sense of bravado and daring blurs the line between traditional live performance and the microprocessor obsessed futurism. Tone Of Arc's powerful stage presense drawn from old school cats like Iggy Pop, The Clash, and Bowie helps to partially define the originality of his music. Boyd himself describes these new directions in sound as discovering the infinite within the mortal remains and posits that this is the dichotomy of existence. Even the alias Dead Seal is part of his philosophy acting as "a symbol of my past, present, and future lives- reminding me that I am more than just a man." Tone Of Arc, in short means for the sound of the laws of creation, a name born from the wonder of the sound that holds all things in the universe together.
