French bassist Joelle Leandre and US/German vocalist Lauren Newton recorded these duos live at Club Gromka in Ljubljana, Slovenia in 2010. Through eight improvisations the two explore a diverse set of interactions on string and voice, with unusual and captivating approaches to each instrument that work effectively together. Since the 90s the two have been part of a quintet with Fritz Hauser, Urs Leimgruber, and Heiri KŠnzig, which fuels their confident and imaginative use of their individual languages; this is a conversation drawn out from that group, and their comfortable enthusiasm with each other shows.

Joelle Leandre is well known as a principle player in the European Free Jazz community. She has collaborated and performed with some of the most acclaimed players on the scene, and has also composed extensively for dance, theater, and multidisciplinary performance. Her discography is enormous, as is her energy and determination in composition and performance.

Lauren Newton was born in Oregon, but earned her degree in Vocal Performance at the School of Music in Stuttgart, Germany in 1977, where she currently resides. She works in both the fields of improvisation and 20th century music. From 1979-1990 she was a singer for the Vienna Art Orchestra. In 1983 she received the German Critics Award for her solo album "Timbre". She is a member of the vocal quartet "Timbre", and has worked with a diverse set of artists including Anthony Braxton, Koho Mori, Jon Rose, Aki Takase, &c.
