Two different temperaments, the same background – this observation was the basis of the idea of inviting eRikm and Fennesz to form a duo for the first time. A few days before the duo premiered at the Donaueschinger Musiktage 2003 the musicians met in the SWR studio to try out strategies for playing together. This CD captures the two best takes from these studio sessions along with the recording of the festival concert, which lasted about forty minutes. Although they are much more abstract than the rock-like Donaueschinger concert, the studio takes reveal most strikingly that the new duo is united in inner harmony. — Reinhard Kager (translated by Friederike Kulcsar)
