Jochen Irmler and Jaki Liebzeit met in the town of scheer last july to prepare for an upcoming concert at the slaughterhouse in sigmaringen as well as for a subsequent appearance in the kammerspiele in munich. however, they quickly decided to stop rehearsing and instead record flut - an album that regroups six improvisations between organ and percussion. flut adds another chapter to irmler's collaborations, which aim to explore, whenever possible, the hidden potential that lies dormant in the clash between prepared organ and drums. the series includes previously - published collaborations with gudrun gut (programmed beats), with fm einheit's percussive bass - string playing, and with christian wolfarth's uncategorizable drumming, pushing the limits of harmony and tuning to ever more complex results. a special energy is released through the clash between irmler, one of krautrock's main driving forces ever since his work with faust, and his sparring partner jaki liebezeit, the living legend from can, whose unrivalled hypnotic drumming has earned him a reputation as one of the most avant-garde percussionists, and as a human drum machine.
