    “Endless probing that hooks into your neurons, this album leaves sonic organisms floating around you. Even if that's merely an illusion, the alchemy of Mori and Rønn’s hyperactive stew is very real.”
    -Marc Masters-

    Ikue Mori and Christian Rønn are the superlative electroacoustic duo, well “duo” unless you count the instruments themselves and you should. Rather than contain with rigid composition, these twin masters of unrule remain radically attuned, open to resonance of time and sound, invoking even the personhood of space and object, chordis et machina. You´ll soon see, once this music gets loose to join you in your own environ.
    No meandering muddiness, the precision and responsiveness of this heady collaboration steps swiftly from fine grit distortions to leaky sinewaves, sweeping from the playfully melodic to the seriously xenomorphic. As prepared-piano hammers against braiding electronics, each possibility unfurls the next. Tossed from the final groove, you'll hike up your needle and want to plunge right back in.
    About the artists
    Ikue Mori's impact as drummer of post-punk pioneers DNA found an unexpected path when a drum machine set alight her astonishing oeuvre in electronic music, both solo and in collaboration across 30+ albums in bands like Death Ambient, Mephista and in collaboration with John Zorn, Okkyung Lee, Zeena Parkins, Sylvie Courvoisier, Susie Ibarra, Wadada Leo Smith, Fred Frith, Kato Hideki, Evan Parker, Dave Douglas, Evyind Kang, Craig Taborn and Kim Gordon.
    Copenhagen's Christian Rønn is renowned for his electronic and organ improv music, his filmscores and performances on more than 20 albums, collaborations with Rhys Chatam, Peter Peter, Lotte Anker, P.O. Jørgens, Ingrid Chavez, Vanessa Daou, Jenny Graf, Bob Bellerue, Aram Shelton, his group projects Prox, Panser, Blind Mans Band and his popular solo project, Ganga.
