In April 2011 Giuseppe Ielasi and Andrew Pekler met for a three day recording session at Pekler's studio in Berlin. In a comfortable atmosphere and with a minimum of preparation, the two artists endeavored to find common musical ground through their shared interests in sample manipulation, layering the texture and improvisation. Some months later Ielasi auditioned the recordings and then mixed down his favorite passages. To a few of these selections Pekler then added an overdub or an edit, but for the most part "Holiday for Samples" is a document of real-time interaction. One-time pressing edition limited to 250 copies, mixed and mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi and with cover artwork by Andrew Pekler.
