[from the publisher] The music recorded here is the product of free improvisation. The work was organized as follows: Pagliero sent live sounds via midi connection — to eight electronic pads which were then played by Giust with drumsticks. In this way the first musician’s choises directly reflected on the other musician’s work. They both didn’t know what direction the music would have taken, cause it went its way, regardless to their possible intentions. In practice, the sound produced by each pad (its high, its timbre, its volume and its striking up) could change in any moment, offering a shifting base for a percussive work as much free. This method seems to meet the typical sensitivity/needs of a free improvisation duo. In this record sound development and rythmic movement, two elements usually depending on a single player, are the inextricable result of the two musicians. Pagliero is therefore responsible for the sound choise while Giust, without any control on it, plays and composes a music based on the constantly changing material organized by Pagliero. At the mastering/editing, there are no overdubs nor sound alteration intervened. This album has been recorded on December 29th and 31th, 2005, in the same day in which the English musician Derek Bailey died, to which this disc is dedicated.
