In early 2009, Norwegian pianist Bugge Wesseltoft met up with Berlin’s producer and DJ Henrik Schwarz for an improvised session exploring their collaborative force to combine acoustic jazz with electronic music. For both of them, that special night sparked off a new beginning of a future project. Since then they performed together in various gigs and now they are already recording their album for a release in 2010. Yesterday they published the first glimpse of how they work together in Bugge’s studio room in Oslo:
