Berlin based composer-performers Liz Allbee and Burkhard Beins team up for some electro-acoustic explorations, utilising synths and field recordings, trumpet and percussion. Informed by their musical backgrounds ranging from industrial / noise via musique concrete to free improv, the two players create interactive fields of an imaginarchic nature. Many lesser oddball talents make the proud boast that they will invite you into their strange mental world and amaze you thereby. Allbee not only makes good on the promise, but she refuses to let you out again afterwards. I hereby dub her the Circe of the avant-garde music world, and I have now been turned into a pig

Burkhard Beins is best known as one of the most distinctive percussionists in European free music, performing in groups both in Berlin (Phosphor, Perlonex, Activity Center) and beyond (The Sealed Knot, Trio Sowari), though on the strength of his two solo albums (...) he's no slouch as a composer either, bringing the same acute ear for timbre and immaculate sense of timing to more fixed structures... - The Wire -
