The fruit of collaboration between Zan Hoffman (usa) and Gintas K (lt) done in 2005 using computers to exchange the sounds and manipulate them. 30 minute’s long bridge from Marijampole to Louisville (or vice versa).
One of the most productive world’s experimental musicians Zan Hoffman (arround 950 releases) from Louisville, USA works mainly in collaborative manner. Since 1984 he was soliciting short recordings through the mail for the collaborations with the artists worldwide.
Zan Hoffman says: “I’ve been pestering people by e-mail for years now to send me some “oneminute wonders” and the result has been fantastic. I’ve been collaborating with new people I’ve bumped into online. If years go by since the last time I’ve received a 15 x 1min. submission from someone who I liked working with, I’ll ask them again for more tracks. This has been the case with Jeff Surak (dc), Steffan De Turck (nl) and… Gintas K (lt).”
The first collaborative releases done from Gintas’ K materials were Your Life Has Been Buffered For You, The Prostitution Of Absurdity and Your Life Has Been Prepared For You (check the zeromoon for all). In 2005 Mr.Hoffman asked Gintas K for more sound recordings and from those he produced two releases under his Zanoinsect project- Gentle Knifing and Groping Knell. The former uses only Gintas K sources and the latter also incorporates sound sources of Zan.
