For some years now, I wanted to make an album using the macro/HD sounds of ASMR videos, which seemed like an obvious source material for a kind of semi-improvised Musique Concrète or sound-collage, but after several false starts, I could never really find a way in until a chance meeting with Anton Mobin led to this collaboration. 
The close-focus tactile quality of Anton's sounds, and the clarity of detail, gestural precision and openness of his playing seemed like a good retort to the hermetic audio-fetishism of the ASMR videos, and opened a door for me to an easy, natural way of working, like a kind of 'audio-essay' or 'drawing with sound', a half-way house between the musical and the visual. It seems like an interesting place to be.
