A senses stimulating meeting, recorded in central London's former slaughter house, Oxo Tower. Piching Adam Bohman's scraped and scrunched clutter with the hum and bubble of Jean-Michel Van Schouwburg's voice. Unimagined pitches and timbres collide and oscillate, drawing the listener into an ever deepening, real-time sound sculpture. Beautiful music for an ugly world.
