------------------------------------

Edition of 300.

Second Editions:

"After their distinguished duet 'Portals' for Cafe Oto's Takuroku label, 'Ance is perfect, intimate attunement' is a wonderful sophomore collaborative work pieced together over two years of changing coincidence seasons, ideas, moods, and feelings. shifting field of sound correspondence that pivots on moments of coincidence, of a tuning in.

What are we opening ourselves to when we tune in to sound? How can one be truly open to a sound? How can the activity of recording move beyond notions of capture and release into more generative frames? Rather than a tool purposed for preservation or ' conservation' of memory, of time and place, can recording sound instead form new vibrant or vibratory spaces of attunement?

'A Coincidence..' is an LP length composition of multiple interlocking parts, created through exchange, alignment, unpredictability: the title borrowed from poet Fanny Howe falling right into place, a flock of birds in flight, pitches matched and moved across different geographies and temporal frames. Marja & Judith have created an intuitive, lyrical longform piece that considers the idea of ​​attunement itself as, in some sense, the smallest form of measure or denominator connecting their respective practices: across field recording, just intonation, electronic sonorities and instrumental bodies. 'A coincidence..' reflects a sense of a willingness to tune in to impulses given, or gifted to the other, a position that embraces an intimate synchronicity. "
