about

Originally, all they wanted was record one mutual track for the Japan tour in spring 2014. On this tour, Andi Otto and F.S. Blumm would present their recent solo records in nine cities in Japan, and one duo track couldn't hurt for an encore.
These duo compositions came off surprisingly easy, and in a breath there were seventeen tracks instead of one. Keeping in mind that both solo albums have been six years in the making, the recording of “The Bird And White Noise“ within two months is extraordinary.
It's a proof of the compatibility of Andi Otto's cello and F.S. Blumm's acoustic guitar, both played through their individual electronic systems. They create dense structures filled with their particular sounds of acoustic instrument processing. The melodic sessions are woven with numerous field recordings from the artists' concert tours to India, Japan, and Italy. The record's fundament are slow, powerful beats which hold everything together
Andi Otto was responsible for the studio production at most times while F.S. Blumm, experienced for years in making radio plays, handled the mixing and collaging of the parts. “The Bird And White Noise“ invites to join the travels, and in its long arches and bridges it can easily be listened to as a whole.
While the opener or “Eskimono“ feature the rather lyrical side of the duo, tracks like “Land Ab Neu“ or “Chitin“ set more punchy priorities to a heavy bass and 808 drums. “Chitin“ is a late climax of the album, building up for minutes to a massive groove in an insect-like, abstract sound world, leaving just enough space for romantic cello lines to break through in the middle.
