This CD represents the culmination and second release 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. Kribophoric KRISPEN HARTUNG: Mini electric guitar, mini nylon string guitar, nylon string guitar, voice, laptop computer (max-MSP, Reaktor) BOB STERLING: electronic and acoustic drums, misc hand percussion, voice,looping devices, FX, synth, plastic straws and twist ties, and other found objects.
