"A stripped down duo version of the 'Roots and Wires' group (personnel: Hans Koch, Martin Schütz, I-Sound, Studer & Singe) recorded late February 2000 in Zurich, with additional remixes by Singe recorded in the spring of 2001. An interesting and often challenging multi-disciplinary meeting; each clearly stemming from different sides of the tracks (Fredy being the master Euro-improviser percussionist legend, Singe being the Soundlab co-founder collagist junglist turntablist). Anything but what you'd preconceive ('You play some crazy free improv scatter beats and I'll drop an amen... check it!'), actually a rather vital and surprising mix, from Singe's chansons-plunder and electro-body-rock to Fredy's prog-jams and falling sheets of metal. A section of skratch-found vocals and bowed cymbals brings to mind nothing less than Bob Ashley's tell-all intimates or Nurse With Wound. Pretty cool." -- Hrvatski.
