I believe it was the autumn of 2016 that Federico mailed me asking me to perform at his show during the Japan tour in spring 2017.
We were talking about making limited collaboration CDRs to sell at the tour venues. And the actual collaboration started
around the middle of February 2017 when the discussion of the details of the tour was pretty much confirmed.
Within 2 weeks, we finished around 7 tracks. Basically the tracks were made by sending each other field recording materials,
and the other person finishes by adding instruments and processing.
If you listen closely, you can tell who was in charge of that track but we decided to conceal that and present everything as co-work.
During the Kansai tour with Federico , we had a successful event at the Kobe event having fuuyamn (she did the paintings for this album covert) doing live painting,
and the day after did the Nara show which also went well. The next day, we took a slow walk together in Nara.
After that, the 2 organizers of the Kobe event showed us around to Iga and Federico seemed very impressed about it.
Then Federico took a long flight back to Argentina and did a concert inside of a mountain hut in Patagonia.
I guess it was around May 2017 that we continued our collaboration. After few exchanges, we were able to finish some additional tracks,
and finally put together the mixing and the overall balance. Then we had Nao from Spekk listen to the album,
and invited fuuyamn to do the painting for the artwork and this is how it happened.
Please expect to read a special episode that has occurred during the making, which you can read inside the booklet.
