This collaborative work was made over the internet, sharing files, ideas and confronting our individual voices and ways to work.
Each track was approached in a distinctive way so that we could balance how much creative process each of us brought to the piece.
Tracks one and two were made as mirrors where one person generated samples which the other one manipulated and arranged-and vice-versa. As a contrast, track three was a longer process in which each of us participated in the arrangements as we both added layers of recordings to the piece.
This collaboration took place between the spring and mid summer 2011.
