San Francisco producer/life long musician Derrick Boyd aka Dead Seal, now Tone Of Arc, a world wide performing duo/band which includes Derrick's wife/vocalist Zoe Presnick. An originally bold couple possessing a refreshingly wide range of musical expression. Tone Of Arc brings a glimpse of real musicality to the underground scene mixing techno, punk, funk, 80's, and nameless styles much like Zappa into colorful explosions of sound. Their show and sound is something rarely experienced on the dance floor. While singing, playing guitar, bass, and keys during a fully mixed slew of original songs consumes the audience with a sense of bravado and daring blurs the line between traditional live performance and the microprocessor obsessed futurism. Tone Of Arc's powerful stage presence drawn from old school cats like Iggy Pop, The Clash, Talking Heads, and Bowie helps to partially define the originality of their music. Boyd himself describes these new directions in sound as discovering the infinite within the mortal remains and posits that this is the dichotomy of existence. Even the alias Dead Seal is part of his philosophy acting as "a symbol of my past, present, and future lives- reminding me that I am more than just a man." Tone Of Arc, in short means the sound of the laws of creation, a name born from the wonder of the sound that holds all things in the universe together. This passionate couple known for their joking and childlike spiritual presence gives their fans a feeling of being excited for life wherever they are. By constantly pushing their own musical and spiritual boundaries TOA transcends any environment common or cliche, breaking a path for curiosity and growth.
