Günter Müller and Otomo Yoshihide are deeply respected musicians who have known each other for more than a decade. Müller and Otomo first met in Matsushima, Japan in 1989 at a show Müller was doing in an abandoned quarry with his band Nachtluft. Otomo had driven four hours from Tokyo to see the performance, and afterwards they met for the first time. They've since collaborated in a handful of contexts, most notably the Filament 2 record on For 4 Ears, with the trio of Müller, Otomo and Sachiko M. Time Travel was recorded in October 2002, just before the Amplify 2002 festival, and marked their first meeting as a duo. Time Travel consists of seven focused, distinct pieces, which combine to create a unique sense of time, slowly but constantly developing and filled with intricate details. Friederike Paetzold's gorgeous design focuses on vector distortions of time zone maps to create a jet-lagged frequent flyer effect. Personnel: Günter Müller: ipod, minidisc, selected percussion, electronics; Otomo Yoshihide: electric guitar, turntables, electronics.
