Building drama and tension in unexpected ways, cellist Tristan Honsinger and guitarist Olaf Rupp created a richly nuanced performance that offers immediate thrills and rewards repeated listening. Also part of the Special Edition FMP im Rückblick / FMP in Retrospect box set.
"The final record in this gorgeous boxset is a recording from 2010, the very first meeting between cellist Tristan Honsinger and guitarist Olaf Rupp. Free improvisation, rich in extended techniques, with moments that will keep you on the edge of your seat. I haven’t heard much from Rupp to this day, but I’m quite fond of his playing here."

"The eight titled tracks on this session make up the following query: “Can you imagine a conversation between a table and a chair?” Surely any fan of free improv can. But if you’re one who needs voice-over, here we have a guitar and a cello standing in for the table and chair respectively - or is that the other way around? There is much to catch the first time through this one, warranting repeated listens and leaving plenty of time for the furniture to switch duties. Easily achieved - this furniture moves all on its own."
