"(…) It's a curious feeling to implement and test a spontaneous form of orchestration with an artist who has such an extremely independent background. It really felt like we were experiencing an event of singular importance and significance. I can't say if this importance was greater than our own personal joy. But I do know that this music illuminated many ideas for me that had previously remained obscure. For me it remains a kind of phenomenal music, in the sense that in our productions the music became it's own specific phenomenon, and yet one that was still connected to all the other sensorial phenomena. (…)“ - Asger Jorn (from the liner notes)
