1996. Not so much a collaboration as 2 parallel but intersecting cd's by Ostertag and Japanese turntable master Otomo Yoshihide. First "parent" tracks were solicited from drummer Chris Cutler (Henry Cow, Art Bears, etc.), NYC trumpet madcap Herb Robertson, and Tokyo-based koto virtuoso Yagi Michiyo. Ostertag and Otomo then each made a "twin" resampled composition from the "parent." A very strange recording which made several writer's "best cd's of 1996" lists.
