This album was recorded in December 2019 as another elaboration of the "open work" entitled Škrábanice (Scribbles), in which a sound dialogue has unfolded since 2009 between music composer Michal Rataj with the poetry and vocal expression of Jaromír Typlt. Just as all their live performances and the previous album (Škrábanice, 2014), these new recordings are based on the principle of improvisation. This time, however, the traditional duo has been joined by guests – Ivan Boreš on electric and fretless guitar, Tomáš Liška on double-bass and bass guitar and Marek Kimei Matvija on shakuhachi flute. The opening piece, "Move by Move", in which we follow a game between two mysterious players, occupies an area between improvisation and the drama-based composition of the "Hörspiel".
