"This is the long-anticipated encounter between Martin Tétreault and Otomo Yoshihide, recorded in the CBC studios in Montréal. Witness for yourself the clash of two masterful turntable manipulators, one from Japan, the other from Quebec: two universes, two attitudes and one electro-mechanical encounter around the record player.

The result is a stunning collection of twenty-one improvised "situations" exploring themes such as science fiction, education, jungle, cartoons, and seventeen additional surprise topics, and through which our protagonists explore harsh noise, grooveless needles, mutant scratching... all in the name of vinyl. 21 revolutionary improvisations which deliver on your expectations."-Ambiances Magnetiques
