Three residencies – at Vooruit (Ghent), Flagey (Brussels) and deSingel (Antwerp) – gave the band opportunities to incorporate new ideas into its music, like the use of piano, harpsichord and synths. Collaborating with an external musician was a first for the band. Australian composer, improviser and producer Joe Talia (Oren Ambarchi, Jim O’Rourke) is very active in Tokyo and Berlin, and an expert in constructing musical collages. This collaboration was a true dialogue, with Talia granted the freedom to remodel/remix the material that the band designed during their residencies. As such, Steiger’s interplay created a dialogue with this electronic artist. The end result: an electro-acoustic exploration that blurs boundaries.
