Verzerrtes Rauschen & Knistern; abstraktes Elektro-Sirren; konkret geheimnisvolle Soundobjekte; leise, schwelende Feedbacks; pltzliche Brche & bergnge. So lsst sich vielleicht die akustische Dimension dieser live-Improvisation umschreiben.

"Keith Rowe and Christian Fennesz are recognized as two of the most prominent and influential musicians in experimental music. However, despite their joint participation in the 12 person MIMEO collective, their commercially released work has rarely intersected, which is why Live at the LU, a document of their first duo show together, is so revealing. Recorded in May 2002 in Nantes, Live at the LU finds the two musicians revisiting old pathways, further exploring territory they've separately mapped on records such as The Crypt, Harsh, and Hotel Paral.lel. Together they construct a soundworld that is jagged yet bright, stark and jarring, but in the end, somehow still soothing. Rowe's cover painting is deeply symbolic, rife with subtle references, many of which are fleshed out in Friederike Paetzold's brash pop design."[press release]
