Surprising and hardly classifiable release by Jason ‘Offthesky’ Corder plus acoustic ensemble *** R Beny demonstrates what the opposite of decay sounds like.

Various artists explore the Fessman Sound Stones * Eiléan and Dauw present musical soulmates in various combinations.
In recent years it is not uncommon that artists work together without meeting each other in real life. On-Line collaboration is a common working method: sending work-in-progress to each other until it’s ready.

Dialog Tapes, released by Eilean Records and Dauw proves that the sum can indeed be much greater than the sum of its parts.
