94 Diskont

94 Diskont is an album by the experimental electronic music group Oval. The vinyl version of the album comes with a remix LP that contains remixes by Mouse on Mars, Scanner, Cristian Vogel, and Jim O'Rourke. It was released in 1995 (see 1995 in music) by Mille Plateaux in Europe and in 1996 by Thrill Jockey in the United States.

Oval received both praise and controversy for its styling methods, such as literally deconstructing music and digital audio by using exacto knives, paint, and tape to damage the surfaces of compact discs, only to stitch the sound back together in loops of melody punctuated by the disc's physical skips.

94diskont was released as a companion piece with Oval's previous album, Systemisch. The album centers around "Do While," a 24-minute track originally composed for the group's 8-channel, 128-speaker modular sound installation named Wohnton (translates into home tone) in a stereo mixdown. The installation was shown throughout Europe between 1994 and 1996 on various occasions, ranging from art exhibitions to techno raves.
