During the improvisations, a call-and-response working principle emerged immediately which joins the special talents of both musicians. Kyokas free and experimental approach forms part of the source material that is contrasted with Eomacs skillful editing; unconventional reflections face a driving force. From Kyokas extensive field recording collection, an arabesque of disturbing vocal fragments arises that is set against Eomacs hard rhythmic framework, as in »Das Tier«, for instance. »37 Years Later« or »Mystic« live on a vivid texture that has been condensed directly at the mixing console into a kind of dramaturgical capturing of the moment. The immediacy of the collaboration forms the basis for a synergy of the individual production techniques. A strategy that lacks neither absolute creative freedom nor an awareness of musical function.
»Söder Mälarstrand« thus captures an intuitive cooperation between the two producers, which also refers back to the place of origin through its dialogical, moment-related production principle. The album title is a tribute to the Stockholm studios where the project began.
»Söder Mälarstrand« will be released on the 28th of June 2019 on CD and digitally.
