"Originally, all they wanted was record one mutual track for the Japan tour in spring 2014. On this tour, Springintgut and F.S. Blumm would present their recent solo records in nine cities in Japan, and one duo track couldn't hurt for an encore. These duo compositions came off surprisingly easy, and in a breath there were seventeen tracks instead of one. Keeping in mind that both solo albums have been six years in the making, the recording of "The Bird And White Noise" within two months is extraordinary. It's a proof of the compatibility of Springintgut's cello and F.S. Blumm's acoustic guitar, both played through their individual electronic systems. They create dense structures filled with their particular sounds of acoustic instrument processing. The melodic sessions are woven with numerous field recordings from the artists' concert tours to India, Japan, and Italy. The record's fundament are slow, powerful beats which hold everything together. Springintgut has been responsible for the studio production at most times while F.S. Blumm, experienced for years in making radio plays, has handled the mixing and collaging of the parts. The record has been released exclusively in Japan for the duo's tour in April 2014 via Pingipung's partner label "nightcruising" in Kyoto. Pingipung now releases the LP version and the CD worldwide."
