Adrian Lim-Klumpes and Nick Calligeros originally met 15 years ago under the dynamic of teacher and student, respectively. After finishing school, Adrian became a mentor to Nick and 15 years on from originally teaching him the fundamentals of improvisation, they have formed this group together. This album was conceived in one take, with only one simple, predetermined structural element guiding them. Everything you hear on the album is completely improvised. 

Nick says: "I feel my musical approach is very much influenced by Adrian, having been taught improvisation by him at an early age and listening to all his projects for so many years. And so, because of this, it felt like we immediately had a strong shared musical language and this natural sympatico when playing together. Listening back to the takes, I could nearly convince myself we were playing a written tune, it's so together in some moments. This is partly because Adrian is such a strong musical listener in these settings and his ability to catch and react to so much, as well as playing some of the most beautiful passages you'll hear from an improvising pianist."

The band also brings together two of Adrian's close collaborators in electronic artist Nicholas Meredith, who from a single drum rigged up to his laptop, is able to get an entire palette of otherworldly electronic sounds, and drummer Miles Thomas, who always brings a fresh and unabashed approach to drumming in these open setting.'
