"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

Artist Biographies:

"Christoph Schiller was born in 1963 in Stuttgart. He studied fine arts at the Kunstakademie Stuttgart and HfBK Hamburg. He later studied piano with Daniel Cholette and music theory in Basel. He has been playing concerts of improvised music on piano since 1987. In recent years the piano has been abandoned in favour of the lighter spinet, for which he has developed specific playing techniques which are influenced by inside piano techniques. Besides keyboard instruments his work with the voice has become increasingly important. He lives in Weil am Rhein and Basel."
