Mazen and I have played together many times since we first met in 2004, in spite of always living on different continents. But only because of Coronavirus did it finally occur to us to try playing over the internet. Playing over the internet felt surprisingly natural, and the recorded results reflect that.

Recorded in April 2020, using Zoom for a visual and (temporary) audio connection. Each of us also recorded our own sounds at home, using direct connections to recorders, and headphones to avoid spilling into each others microphones. Later I was able to line up the recordings. So what you hear is not internet chat audio, compressed and choppy, but much closer to the results we'd get if we were physically together in a recording studio.

This collaboration would not have been possible without satellites and other electronic devices, infrastructures, and systems - owned by companies, governments, and other mysterious institutions - that can connect our home studios.
