Chris and I started working together in the summer of 2013. We immediately discovered a shared sense of form and mutual affinity for powerful and assertive sonic statements. Over the course of the next six months we honed our vocabulary into a language built organically from jazz, contemporary classical music and noise. In the winter of that year we entered the studio to document and distill our efforts into this work, Paroxysm.
