In The Flirts, Fuhler manipulates sounds from turntables and mbiras, filtering them through an analogue synth, with Prins focusing on electronic noise-based music.

Fuhler, Cor / Prins, Gert-Jan: The Flirts (erstwhile)
Label: erstwhile    
Released in: USA    

Cor Fuhler and Gert-Jan Prins are both prominent members of the European improv world. Both live in Amsterdam, yet their paths rarely crossed before they became involved in the initial incarnation of MIMEO in 1997.

Fuhler is primarily known for his work as a pianist, in ongoing projects with such mainstays of the Dutch scene as Han Bennink, Michael Moore and Tristan Honsinger. He released a superb solo prepared piano CD in 1994, 7CC in IO (Geestgronden). In The Flirts, Fuhler manipulates sounds from turntables and mbiras, filtering them through an analogue synth. PrinsÕ background is as a drummer, but over the past decade, heÕs focused almost exclusively on electronic noise-based music, using radio and television transmitters to create a distinctive, physical sound. In 2000, he released a solo CD on Grob, Prins Live, as well as a superb trio CD with Thomas Lehn and Peter Van Bergen, e-rax-Live At the Bimhuis, on his own label, X-Or. Both Fuhler and Prins are also still members of MIMEO.

Since joining MIMEO, Fuhler and Prins have worked more and more together, in and out of the band, and in early 2001, they recorded The Flirts over the course of two studio sessions in Amsterdam. The Flirts combines a relentless yet subdued energy with an endless stream of fresh ideas, resulting in a CD that is seemingly chaotic, yet very musical.
