"Stilluppsteypa and TV Pow are two of the most prominent laptop trios in the world of experimental music. Stilluppsteypa originally hail from Iceland, while TV Pow are all from Chicago. In late October 2000, Stilluppsteypa and TV Pow embarked on a week-long tour of the US. The two groups, while familiar with each other's output, had never worked together before, but did so for part or all of each of these performances. We Are Everyone In The Room was compiled from these shows, including their first collaboration ever at Tonic in NYC. The captivating cover art was created by Leif Elggren, a Swedish conceptual artist and founder of the Kingdoms of Elgaland Vargaland. Stilluppsteypa and TV Pow combine a thorough knowledge and wide range of microscopic sounds with an uncanny sense of how to deploy them in an improv context." "The more established the contemporary genre of noise music becomes, the more surprising it is to hear serious creative distinctions. TV Pow and Stilluppsteypa, two long standing outfits in a field known for there-and-gone participation, have proven to be both dedicated and utterly engaging in their furthering of this most modern of musics. Informed by all concepts of avant garde art music, they successfully transcend any manner of description. In other words this shit full on rocks."--Thurston Moore
