"This collaborative work between U.S. improviser C. Spencer Yeh (Burning Star Core, Drone Disco) and European sound artist Lasse Marhaug is one of the most diverse and rewarding listens in recent memory. It is the result of hours of recording, cut up and spliced together, giving the listener a glimpse into various 20-second snippets of the sessions. Harsh cut-up sonic blasts, violin scrapes and drones, field recordings, vocal exercises, room clatter and much more are used in the process, but the way that they are put together provides a nonstop listen that goes best with highly concentrated listening. Still, the result is so varied, that something new can be heard on every listen: a recording so intense you can never truly grasp what is actually happening; most definitely a highlight in both artists' discographies. In an edition of 400 7"s in pro-printed fold-over sleeves with art by José de Diego."
