Tone Language is a collab between Lee Norris / Metamatics / Nacht Plank (the latter being the relevant point of comparison) and the guys from Reflection. I guess they met when they were doing stuff with Clear, but this sounds very little like that label's output, nor like what any of the artists were getting up to separately in 2000.
I first heard them through epitonic.com - you can still download a three of their MP3s from that site - and stumbled upon the CD second-hand yesterday. The music holds up really well, a kind of turn of the century take on ambience with the requisite crackling textures, CD-skipping sounds and bit degraded fx, that's still really accessible. Would appeal to fans of Neina, Microstoria, Oval circa Systemisch, and maybe Shuttle 358.
I've only given it one listen through, but I think it'll be worth revisiting.

This album, released on 12k records in 2000, is sort of similar to the other Frank Bretschneider albums I own, being made up of minimal clicks and tones while keeping a steady groove and at times allowing subtle melodies to emerge. Like Bretschneider's other albums that I have this one plays as a continuous mix, with each track flowing into the next, making the disc a lot stronger and more coherent than a track-based album, in my opinion.
Shuttle 358: Frame
I think I first heard Shuttle 358 on the Chronologi compilation that was put out with tracks from 12k's first releases. There were two tracks by him on that comp, one from Optimal.lp and one from this album, Frame, which is a really beautiful ambient album. It has a 4.9 rating on Discogs, which is the highest I've seen for something with a decent amount of ratings. …
