Uwe Schenk: master of all musical trades, experienced live instrumentalist,
movie soundtrack composer, arranger and band leader.
Dragan Espenschied: home computer folk music pioneer of Bodenstšndig 2000 fame,
expert in obsolete 8 bit technology, sound chip musician, and raver.
Uwe lays down rich harmonies on his grand piano, Dragan tries to squeeze another
three notes into 4 kilobytes of RAM. Uwe writes musical score for multiple
instruments, Dragan cannot even read score and enjoys typing hexadecimal numbers
into his Commodore VIC 20.
They had to learn from each other to pull it off. The intensive re-arranging of
Dragan's tunes and rehearsals with the Uwe Schenk Show Band lasted more than two
weeks, for just a single 30 minute show at a tiny venue, sold out with 108
people in the audience.
All minds blown, all skins goosebumped, all eyes watered. This record contains
the most epic 10 minutes of this performance.
