"3 Banditos is the result of a successful collaboration evolved. Frankfurt based Tobias Schmitt and Jair-Rohm Parker Wells, who lives in Sweden first met in October of 2004 when they performed together at the Forum for Experimental Music in Frankfurt. Schmitt on laptop and Parker Wells on the Fichter electric double bass augmented by electronics proved to be an inspired combination and the two made it a point to perform as often as possible at venues hosting improvised electro-acoustic music around Germany. The live performances where always well received and filled with exciting twists and turns of discovery. The pair knew immediately that this was something to be documented and distributed to a larger audience. After a couple of failed direct to DAT attempts at their live gigs, local Frankfurter musician and studio owner Tommi Bucalic (who had previously collaborated with Schmitt on [name of project from Schmitt's site]) stepped up to the plate and offered the duo space in his studio along with his skills on bass and processed Fender Rhodes as well as varied and sundry other instruments and objects. In November 2005 the three entered Bucalic's studio and performed the improvisation that would become the first 3 Banditos release "Sympathy for the Donkey"." (label info)
