ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
On November 6th, 2007 Kiite Records released for world-wide distribution Eccotonic's debut CD "Flow Motion". Eccotonic is a downtempo/lounge/chill-out electronica studio project by LA-based film composer and recording artist Cato. While influenced by LA's incredible variety of human culture, Cato still retains an artistic sensibility reflecting his European background, which includes numerous solo electronica/ambient concerts, DJ-gigs and scoring cutting edge, award-winning television shows. Mixing an eclectic palette of organic and electronic sounds, the music of Eccotonic represents the culmination of a body of work by Cato and his collaborators that spreads over the past several years. It is also a natural extension of his film scoring work, including the track "Cache" that incorporates musical elements from the award-winning film of the same name, directed by Carolyn Coal.

Cato's collaborations with other musicians on "Flow Motion", most notably with singer/songwriter Jenny Campmany, are usually heavily edited, sometimes distorted and otherwise treated through his constantly evolving sonic signatures. These have already made Cato a sought-after creator of music for visual media, having resulted in many scores for award-winning feature films, documentaries, commercials and video games, including the opening music for "Smokin' Aces" (Universal, 2007), the score for "Semper Fi: One Marine's Journey" (Showtime, 2007) and the score for the Kevin Spacey production "Mini's First Time" (HBO, 2006).

For more on Cato's music for film and television, please visit Cato's composer profile on MySpace at www.myspace.com/musicbycato as well as Cato's page in the Internet Movie Database.

Cato is starting to get attention for his remix work as well, which includes a remix of "Burn Me Again" by British band Alpha. The remix appears on a bonus disc included with their new album "The Sky Is Mine", that features the original track, released in the US on February 12th 2008. Reviewer Kris Kendall of Resonance Magazine writes; "The new CD has a bonus disc of b-sides and remixes. I get tired of remixes but Cato's reworking of "Burn Me Again" is terrifying in a good way. Save this for moody evenings when you're feeling sorry for yourself.".

Going back to the music of Eccotonic, it has already been selected for CD-compilations (Pacha Ibiza's "Roof Terrace Vibe Vol. III"), licensed to network television (CBS/Paramount's "Girlfriends" on UPN) and played on famed Santa Monica, California radio station KCRW by Chris Douridas. Please visit www.myspace.com/eccotonic and www.eccotonic.com for further Eccotonic news and info.

EXCERPTS FROM THE LATEST REVIEWS of "FLOW MOTION":

From BlogCritics.org (reviewer: Scott Deitche) 01.15.08:

"This is music for early mornings and late nights, for the office or for introspection. In other words, it’s archetypical downtempo/lounge, albeit with a slightly mellower feel than say Mono or some of Tracey Thorn’s work. The pastoral electronics on the CD are compressed, stretched, distorted, and squeezed, bringing out an unusual lushness in the music without veering into new age boredom. The beats are nicely interspersed; they don’t jar the listener from settling into the melody."

From THICK, thickonline.com 11.30.07:

"The future is now, and the music of the future is here. Well, maybe it's safer to say the future of downtempo music is here, and it's name is Eccotonic. This first release by Eccotonic, Flow Motion, is a beautiful creation."...read the rest in the Eccotonic blog.

Sari N. Kent of TheCelebrityCafe.com: "Flow Motion" from Eccotonic has a matchless and eclectic collage of songs that span the musical spectrum of catchy to calming in one swoop." - Rating 8 out of 10.

Thanks for stopping by!

Fresh, New, Beautiful Sound
From the moment I heard "Kiite" I knew that I would love Flow Motion. Eccotonic has created something so incredible, some songs such as "Post Scriptum" and "Cache" just leaves me speechless. Each song has its own different feeling and the vocals capture this perfectly. This cd is so rare; it's the first of its own kind. You will not be disappointed with this disk.

one *beautiful* disc
I told myself I was going to try to curb
my CD-buying impulses this year. So much for
*that* New Year's Resolution. I recommend that
you do as I did...or intend to...and buy THIS
one before making any such rash statements. :)

Gorgeous, fully-realized music which is in very
frequent rotation around here lately. One of the
finest downtempo jewels in my collection.

Phenomenal!
Eccotonic's Flow Motion is clearly the best album I've heard in a long time! Amazing beats, lyrics, and vibe that just all around leaves you feeling good and refreshed. I have recommended this to everyone I know... phenomenal music!
