In 2002, Lee Ranaldo invited me to join him as a duo for a concert at the MEM festival in Bilbao. At the time i was experimenting with the computer and loops, having briefly appeared for few times at chill-out environments. The instrument configuration i used in this concert is unique, i had never used it before and never did again. It was recorded on two separate minidiscs (one of them by Rui Gato, among the audience, the other from the desk). I synced and mixed them to bring out the best of each, yet the recording is still not ideal. I keep good memories of that concert, and it features Lee's distinctive poetry reading.
