Gunnar Lettow and Korhan Erel have been playing concerts in Germany since 2011 after their first meeting in Istanbul in April of that year. Their three-year collaboration is now documented with this album, recorded in February 2013 at Gunnar's home in Hamburg and its title comes from the town of the same name, Bad Fallingbostel on the way from Hamburg to Hannover, to which the duo traveled twice every year since first meeting. The names of tracks come from other German towns.

"Bad Falling Bostel has a great atmosphere from the start which I would like to focus on rather than just explore the theoretical part which might take too overblown and exaggerated shape, too much of a coincidence with free-improv ghost. Both of the artists have definitely mastered a very tough cookie job of listening to each other and react to what they actually produce or reproduce when it comes to the compositional techniques. Korhan's taking a lead in very unorthodox approach to electronic instruments - using Wii and iPad as choices of primary weaponry - in the utmost fantastic effect - having said that I must admit that controlling as he does it is very rare - and emulating the sounds - transposing them into electroacoustic second half of Gunnar is done gracefully with deep intuition and self-orchestrated drive. Gunnar on the other hand has done a tremendous job on mastering different acoustic devices, twinkling, screeching, squeaking and howling - putting them in the background or as a lead. I like the narrative bit that this album has, a very unique thing about albums I might have put into similar file."-Hubert Heathertoes
