"<falte> is methodically based upon a technique invented by the surrealists entitled «exquisite corpse». A method by which a collection of words, images or sounds are assembled collectively in sequence, either by following a rule or by delivering and making visible the «ending» of what has been created previously. This procedure has a resemblance to an old parlor game entitled «consequences», in which the players write alternately on a sheet of paper, fold it to conceal part of what they wrote and pass it on for further contribution.
Based on this process a series of compositions by schurer > steinbrüchel was presented in September 2006 as an eight channel surround soundinstallation at the Kunsthaus Zurich, accompanied by a four channel visual contribution by Yves Netzhammer. The version on this CD documents a condensed, slightly more composed and therefore differentiated form of folding."-NVO
