ChipShop has been working together since 2007, combining Irish and Swedish players amongst the best and most prolific in modern electroacoustic improvisation. Atolón is 3/4ths of Octante, who released lunula on Another Timbre in 2009. Fages and Monteiro have worked together for more than a decade as Cremaster, with releases on Monotype. The merging of these two groups brings six keenly listening improvisers together for a unique and spacious music, a fascinating album of restrained soundwork that belies the size of the group, while fascinating the listener in subtle details.
