Andrew Dobson has been recording and performing his particular take on classically-influenced electronica as Digitonal since 1997.  Part of the late phase of UK melodic electronica, he came to prominence on the seminal Toytronic Records label with a track on the classic Neurokinetic compilation and a debut album, 23: Things Fall Apart, on the label shortly afterwards.

Since then he has recorded for Seed Records, Cactus Island, Uncharted Audio, B12 and longtime home Just Music who released Save Your Light for Darker Days in 2008, followed by  retrospective compilation Be Still My Bleeping Heart.

Alongside frequent collaborator, Egyptian violinist Samy Bishai, and a flexible array of musicians including cellist Jo Quail and harpist Kat Arney, Digitonal have toured extensively and have been in demand as a live act, known for their improvised sets of great range and beauty.

New studio album Beautiful Broken is released on the 4th of May 2015.
