CELER & DIRK SERRIES 'Background Curtain' CD
"In 2012, after trading LPs, I sent Dirk a long track of collaged, stretched tape pieces to see if it was something he could work with. [...] this particular set of recordings seemed puzzling to me, and unworkable. [...] Later, after a tour (with Mono) he actually sent me some tracks that he had made while listening to the piece [...] Out of the blue, maybe a year later, I went back and listened to our tracks, having some distance for my ears, and had an idea. Using the original track that I sent Dirk at the very beginning as a sound source, I shaped it exactly like Dirk's responding source file - the musical colour and frequencies were the same, but the effects and enveloping was triggered by the waves of Dirk's track.[...]
It may be hard to hear the two sides, but it's really built by the background curtain, and even if you can't hear it's place, it's definitely there. Where does one thing begin and another end? Maybe you can hear it?"
The album is released in a 3-panel ecopak in a strictly limited edition of 300 copies. The cover is designed by Rutger Zuydervelt (Machinefabriek) based on the photograph by Will Long (Celer).
