"Keith Rowe and Toshimaru Nakamura first began collaborating in 2001, and since then they have developed into ideal partners, perfectly balanced from decidedly different perspectives, a consummate rapport without lapsing into predictability. Since their first CD, Weather Sky, was released in 2001, they have toured as a duo throughout Europe and the US, playing dozens of shows together. Between was mostly recorded over two days and nights in July 2005 at Amann Studios in Vienna, combined with one long track from Lausanne a few months earlier. The music seems impossible to process or analyze, defying boundaries and ground rules as soon as they seem to be established. The packaging originated with a photo by Yuko Zama, commissioned by the musicians, which provided the starting point for Rowe's cover painting. Erstwhile designer Friederike Paetzold then filled in the gaps 'between' impeccably, splitting the differences between the aesthetics while not ignoring her own, all adding up to a gorgeous design." Between, for me is about the tension and space between objects, and how we might occupy this area, to reside if you like between the conventions, to locate the flexibility that comes from de-theorizing the dogmas.' -- Keith Rowe.
