Palace St.Gallen invited us to a residency in their wonderful concert venue, to work and experiment on music.
The idea of a collaboration had been floating around in our heads for a long time.
This proposition came to us like a little gift.
We found ourselves on the 1st of January 2021, in the middle of winter, inside this „vaisseau fantôme", with our synthesizers, a grand piano, a drum kit, our voices and a strong desire to create.
We set off in all possible directions and filled the space with our improvisations and laughter. After ten days of creation and a hard drive full of raw recordings, we met again in Paris, in Pyrit's studio inside the Molière fountain, where we spent whole nights long until we lost our voices but finished these songs.
<3 to the whole Palace team, Johannes Rickli and Fabian Mösch for making this possible, Michael Gallusser for the technical support and the perfect mix.
