This LP is a documentation of the very first meeting of Stuttgart-based minimalist Jazz duo Fifty-Fifty & Swabian sound exploration society Metabolismus. All players draw from decades of experience with different forms of improvisation, using instrumental and electronic sounds known and unknown, to spontaneously create an aural environment of complex simplicity. A wide spectrum of group mind expressions can be heard, from the purely abstract to moments of calm reflection. The session was recorded during one afternoon in the Summer of 2012 at Sumsilobatem Sound Studio on magnetic tape, any technical imperfections due to the spontaneous nature of the situation were kept in as part of the document. No digital technology was used in the making of this album. Cover art is hand silkscreened, originally designed by Estuardo Maldonando.
