In June 2012, I had the great pleasure of working with Nick Fells rehearsing and developing a performance we would give in Munich in November 2012 as part of the Surrounded Festival.

During this period of development time, we attempted the combination of some of our existing instruments, feeding the sound from one of my toys directly into one of Nick’s and then back again. This 15 minute, one-shot improvisation is representative of the sounds we came up with one afternoon when I sent sounds from my graphics-tablet driven virtual cello tool into Nick’s delicate sound-fragger developed for his piece “Arine”.
