AllMusic Review by

Recorded live at Synesthesia on February 1, 2000, this collaboration between Christian Fennesz and Rosy Parlane is a 15-minute 3" CD containing two untitled tracks of noisy electronics with an illbient attraction. Track one has a background of new-agey keyboard chords and remains ethereal. Track two is a bit more abrasive but it also uses a keyboard backdrop (although less lethargic). The fan of more orthodox electronics might find here a nice way to get introduced to the avant-garde work of Christian Fennesz, but the seasoned fan will wonder if the man is loosing his edge. The EP Live at Revolver, Melbourne 03_02_00 released by Touch earlier in 2000 and coming from the same tour was more engaging. Still, Live is an enjoyable listen.
