Their puristic approach to electronic music is not only very refreshing, but also very pure and sophisticated. Max Loderbauer was improvising and creating excellently on a grand piano. Tobias Freund is responsible for the treatments and sounds of: Roland DEP 5, Lexicon LXP 5, Roland TR 808. „ We like to put ourselves into a live, one shot, situation. We improvise with little piano melodies and effect units. All ’mistakes’ should be part of the piece“. Sustain your errors... nsi. 2007"
