Tracky says about this release:
"When I was a kid my favorite game was "the folding game": one person draws a head on a piece of paper, folds that part back so that the other person can only see where the drawing ends. Then the other person has to draw the body, fold that as well and so on.
My friend Pierlo in Rome and I always wanted to make music together, and we were looking for a good way to bridge the distance without losing the fun. So we tried to copy the principal of the folding game onto our music, creating a technique we like to call primixing, which is different from just remixing. One person prepares the rough base for a song, leaving it open what musical direction to follow. The other person remixes that base and adds new elements, then returns it. This can go back and forth until the song seems complete.
Unlike making music on your own, you have to keep in mind that what you compose is to be left open and accessable. It is like passing the ball to each other, while it starts out easy and assisting, and turns out difficult, complex or just funny.
It seems that music turns into actual language between two pen pals, with an open topic and no definate end. With the 1111 Unterwasser video I tried to take the game to the next level, trying to come up with images for a song Pierlo made."
