New York, 1978, kindred composers Philip Corner and Carles Santos meet at the sendorfer piano of Charlemagne Palestine to record four-hand piano versions of Corner's pieces Chord and Gong!. The result is a long-flowing distillation of the source of the two composers' affinity: avant-garde practice of austere artistic devotion at play with perfect imperfections of the uncontainable human spirit.


A small cassette edition appeared in the late 1980's and is now presented in a new digital restoration by Stephan Mathieu, alongside a limited edition of 300 vinyl records cut by Lupo.
