Muted Tones was an online sound and music series curated by Joshua Dumas. Each month, musicians and sound artists were encouraged to produce new, original, ten minute recordings and document their process, progress, and thoughts. Remarkable individuals created absolutely remarkable things, from drone-scapes to found sound collages to folk songs to avant-garde improvisations to chamber music.
