Since the late 70's, early 1980's, Monoton and the affiliated project "Institut für wissenschaftliche Sensation" (Institute for Scientific Sensations) have been working on meta-mathematical structures, natural constants and resonance patterns in models of "bionic" psycho-active automat music. Research setups, installations and experiments range from electro-acoustic representations of square roots, powers and periods of n, to explorations of Pi, Fibonacci sequences, Magic Squares and others. Specific audio-software was developed to create psycho-acoustic effects based on frequency following responses and later included audio and VR systems triggered through brain-machine interfaces.
Beyond the available tracks, Monoton was largely performance and installation based, with conceptual environments, site specific events, multi-channel video and multimedia, productions. Over the years a range of various artists joined in the performances and projects.
Starting in 1981 Monoton also conceived music as the soundtrack for more than a dozen video productions of various lengths, like "Monotonprodukt 05", "Mission Monoton", "Trivial TV" and others. Collaboration with Dutch producer Daniel Leeflang started with the remix of a track from "Monotonprodukt 02" for the media production "Synsation". A series of joint live performances for raves and also for dedicated hypermedia productions from 1992 to 1994 resulted in several dance oriented releases.
A pioneer in experimental electronic music, Becker continued to break new ground in electronic media. In 1994 he co-founded the Institute for New Culture Technologies/ t0, and became Director of Public Netbase, a legendary center for digital communication culture. An initiator of World-Information.Org, a cultural intelligence provider, he continues to be active as artist, researcher, writer, interdisciplinary event designer, organizer and producer. Recent conceptual ventures include the Global-Security-Alliance.Com project.
