Christian Munthe & Lee Noyes: Onliners (xfxs-5). Thick paper cover in a plastic sleeve. Limited edition of 150 copies.

One way of putting it is this: One speaks and another takes it in, making it his own and thereafter speaks. Another speaks and one takes it in, making it his own and thereafter speaks. The onliners thereby commencing are fragments of a conversation that never, as it were, took place. The onliners participating in this nonexisting interaction liked each other's approaches from a distance while realising the impossibility of a union. They never spoke together and never created a voice. Yet, here it is and what it speaks are onliners. Jointly edited and partly reactive improvisations by New Zealand percussionist Noyes and Munthe. Each player created solo improvisations, shared online and then edited, mixed and added to by the other. Drums and acoustic guitar in a conversation of sorts – or is it a word?
