The coordinates in the title are from Switzerland, the location where Christoph Schiller and Lea Danzeisen recorded this unusual output from a pair of spinnet keyboards, manipulating them in highly unusual ways.

Label: Creative Sources    
Released in: Portugal    


"Another uncommon sonic wringer from Portuguese label Creative Sources has been signed by a couple of Switzerland-based (as you could easily surmise from the geographical coordinate, which point to a place the district of Franches-Montagnes in the canton of Jura in Switzerland, they used to name this release) musicians, Lea Danzeisen and Christoph Schiller, who decided to squeeze the spinet, the little brother of harpsichord and piano, whose sound got totally transfigured by meticulous modifications on strings, jacks, dampers and plectrums. Given that they marked their collaborative work by highlighting the place it was supposedly assembled and recorded, you could imagine them as a couple of clocksmiths while grappling with a ginormous broken clock, whose resounding coil springs, bellows, rollers, wheels and screws become parts of a huge orchestra over the two long-lasting tracks of the album with moments when their seemingly perfect mechanism suddenly busts. It's quite amazing to imagine their sonic reactions after their nerve-racking assemblage got harmstringed by this unexpected crashes as well."-ito Camarretta, Chain DLK
