This duo from Vienna and Cologne plays free improvised music. The music is created in the moment, without previously agreed concepts or compositions. Beside the pleasure in free improvisation itself, a further strong basis the musicians share is the process of extending traditional instrumental techniques (both with and without preparation and tools), with which the group creates dense but dynamic sonic landscapes with significant room for silence. The heterogeneous instrumentation - string instruments, whether plucked or bowed - provides an enormous acoustic field of potential; nonetheless, it is not always clear which instrument is the source of the sound heard at a given moment.
