This CD represents the culmination of a six-month collaboration between
drummer/percussionist Bob Sterling and electro-acoustic guitar player Krispen
Hartung. Spontaneously improvised files were exchanged on-line, each player
then responding to the previously recorded material. Sometimes just two tracks
were ultimately utilized, while at other other times several tracks were layered via
further improvisations and then mixed in order to better balance the sound. The
spirit of the CD lies in it spontaneity, each artist attempting to 'get into the creative
head' of the other in order to develop compositions that reflect a mood, a setting,
or an implied situation. Bob used a number of acoustic and electronic devices to
fulfill his artistic intents, from acoustic and electronic drums to effect units,
samplers, his voice, mini synths, and even small objects like plastic straws and
twist ties. Krispen's instruments included mini electric and nylon string guitars,
nylon string guitar, voice and laptop computer. Bob and Kris continue to
collaborate this way and intend to release more CDs of their music on a periodic
basis in the future. Their first CD, "Kribophoric-Visceral," will be premiered at the
2008 Boise Experimental Music Festival (BEMF 3) and will be available from the
Paper Cuts Records website.
