Free Oval / Markus Popp Ringtones

Yes, ringtones – from a 2010 promotional EP

Oval, aka Markus Popp, continues to post free recordings to his Bandcamp page. Among the more recent is eight ringtones he released as a promotional EP back in 2010 to coincide with the double album O. This Ringtones EP contains brief tracks of repetitive, minimalist themes, half of them under a minute in length, the longest coming in at 1:23. They post-date the trenchant glitch of Oval’s early work and instead draw from his experiments with band instrumentation, in particular the use of taut guitar string sounds that have a distinct post-rock quality.

Album originally posted for free download at The tracks are up for “name your price,” which includes “free.” More from Oval/Popp at
