“There were five recordings, and we’re using the last four. They were recorded in sequence, with each responding to the one that came before. (So the first recording sets up the whole process.)

Each recording takes up one side of a 12-inch vinyl, four sides in total. The idea being that, across two records, the various different takes can be played in conversation with each other.

The first three recordings, including the initial take, were made in Mette’s practice studio, and the second two were made in the garden at Mette’s house.”
