"A gentle stylistic morphing from two major figures in the global realm of experimental sound and improv. Zeena Parkins sits firm as a multi-instrumentalist, composer, improviser, well-known as a pioneer of the electric harp, she has also extended the language of the acoustic harp with the inventive use of unusual playing techniques, preparations, and layers of digital and analog processing. Ikue Mori has long been a stalwart of the New York improvisation via the post punk set. Her work has seen her evolve from drums to drum machine to laptop -- how about that? Super. As a result the language she presents is as diverse as the wide range of people she has played with. Now, these two swinging cats have hooked up too create a delicate blend of organic acoustic and digital sources. Walk deep in the woods, think far beyond the reaches of our immediate environment. A soft mental and physical scenario in which to bathe, absorb and (gasp horror!) relax."
