Tiptop Audio and Joseph Fraioli come together in the form of the new the Datach’i One card.
The card, to be used exclusively in the Tiptop ONE Sample Player, contains 187 unique sounds ranging from organic recorded elements and electronic percussion to dramatic gestures, ambiences and melodic sequences. Created with Field Recordings, the Eurorack modular synthesizer, Symbolic Sound Kyma system and boutique electro acoustic instruments, all sounds were recorded at 24 bit / 96k quality.
Joseph Fraioli is the Sound Designer/Owner of Jafbox Sound and makes electronic music under the alias Datach’i. His inspiration behind the Datach’i card stems from building upon built material, a resampling technique he often uses in his sound design work. “Having access to sounds as singular samples allows you to continue to build off of them,” Fraioli says. “From there, you can discover a deeper layer of textures the same material.”
As Datach’i, Fraioli has released 6 full length albums between 1999 and 2006 on labels including Planet Mu and Sunlight. In 2016, after a decade’s absence, he returned to his Datach’i alias for a brand new album, “System,” which features 16 tracks of beautiful yet unsettling electronic music created and performed exclusively on a Eurorack modular synthesizer.
