The first disc (aptly named Studio) consist of private recordings, in which silence and static sounds are punctuated by saxophone, snare drum, Bontempi organs, and toy harmonica.

The name of the second disc, Rotonda, will not be surprise to regular Intonema listeners: this is a continuation of a series of recordings made in the Rotunda of the Mayakovsky Library. The unusual acoustics of the former Dutch church acts as a "third" member of the collective. Sounds coming from the street, random rustlings, and movements of the public are woven into a general outline forged by the musicians.
