We do what feels right to us, says Aussie Oren Ambarchi and Canuck crys cole

Personal as well as professional collaborators, sound artists Oren Ambarchi from Australia and Canadian crys cole try to work and travel together as often as they can, although they’re often separated for up to six months at a time.  In this interview with Niels Latomme for Kraak’s The Avant-Guardian, the concepts of what is needed to create a successful performance and recording are discussed by the two. Describing themselves as extremely stubborn, the musicians say that by taking time from other projects, their  duo recordings arise organically as if, as cole says, they are “a  diary or a photo album”.  Although some tracks subsequently recorded evolve from what the two have tried out on stage, any input can be used.  As Ambarchi explains “I’m always inclined to use whatever is necessary to make a piece work.”
