After more than a year of exchanging messages, albums and ideas, Bardo Todol and Anne-F Jacques started this collaboration, each working with sounds from the other and adding to it.
Bardo Todol side recorded in Salsipuedes, Córdoba, Argentina in 2020 and 2021, all the time between 00 and 02 AM. He have to take the power supply of the fridge for recordings, but he always forgot to put it again, so the next morning the whole thing was defrozen.
He uses bowed string instruments, various flutes, various birds, night sounds, electric sounds, toy pigs, snorings from different furry creatures, river sounds, cards, Nico and Cina sounds, drums, tons of ceramic pots and of course, the rotating free and night spirit variations of Mrs. Anne-F Jacques.
Anne-F side recorded in Montréal, Québec, Canada in 2020 and 2021, playing sounds to a single track from Bardo Todol that she listened to so often that it accompanied her in her dreams.
She used rocks, motors, hay, lightbulbs, cardboard, air pumps and several other things that she doesn't remember anymore.
