sample the album:
"The first Mikroton release featuring Russian musicians Ilia Belorukov, a saxophonist from Saint-Petersburg, and Kurt Liedwart, an electronic and computer musician from Moscow who also runs the label. It's their second longplaying work following Obwod which was released on Copy For Your Records. On the new CD the duo goes even further into the realm of unknown contriving to work with silence, space and chance with their traditional means like sinewaves and saxophone's long tones. Saxophone preparations went into the background now and Ilia focuses on working with the saxophone's surface using contact microphones which he feeds into a guitar mini-amp. At the same time Liedwart actively uses field recordings which he unexpectedly intertwines into the music texture. The duo offers its listeners to witness the investigation of saxophone's new possibilities and synthesizer capabilities of ppooll. Eventually the duo finds itself not only in the field of contemporary improvised music but it also employs the means of Wandelweiser composers and noise music."-Mikroton
