Memotone is a multi-instrumentalist and producer. Drawing inspiration from a wide range of sources, his sound is made up of layered instrumentation over the top of field recordings, conversation, atmospheres and electronica programming all tied up with live acoustic drums and binaural percussion, often using an MPC 1000 for live edits. Also showing a keen interest in sound-scape and textural experimentation.
His live show is a captivating blend of instrumentation including piano, keyboard, clarinet, trumpet, zither, guitar, bass, drums, glockenspiel, organ, melodica and toy instruments looped on a Boss RC-50 with live audio effectes from a Kaoss Pad 3 and samples triggered from an MPC 1000. When playing, William Yates is switching from instrument to instrument, from pads to keys and from pedal to pedal in a mesmerizing blur. The use of multi instrumentation invites Memotones audience to physically see every note that is played and to gain further insight into the world that is Meontone.
“Like a great art-house movie memotone’s music can take you places you never knew existed.” – Q Magazine
