The guitarist Elliott Sharp and the turntable player Christian Marclay met in a studio in New York and, during three days, developed unusual tonal worlds.
The encounter of both tone artists brought a «high noon» for creative music on the threshold of the new millennium: metropolitan hi-tech sounds between free and techno, chaos and order, improvisation and construction.

Mary Halvorson is a genius composer and guitarist who has developed her own musical language, and with Code Girl she has incorporated poetry into that language. Incredible compositions and lyricism (each track is a different kind of poem). Halvorson's playing is as great as usual, and all the other members of the band sound great. Robert Wyatt's singing in particular works extremely well in the tracks he's featured. Highly, highly recommend. rat
