Remy Stroomer and Michel van Osenbruggen first met at the E-live festival
in 2007 and several other electronic music events, it soon became clear that
they had a common interest in synthesizers as well as the music of Jean Michel
Jarre. Both were influenced by him, but Remy's and Michel's styles evolved
in different directions.
Eventually during one of Remy and Michel's dinners it was decided that it would be cool to make some music together or at least give it a try.
So they started doing some studio sessions and found out that their approaches were completely different. Remy started yelling musical terms and Michel had no idea what he was talking about.
Where Michel cant even read notes, Remy is classically schooled. In the end it became clear that there shouldnt be talked too much and should just listen to each other and improvise.
That turned out to be a good idea and in the end both made a lot of useful material. During this process Remy and Michel became good friends and you can clearly hear that back on the album.
Their album "PrimiTives" is a good mixture of both of Remy's and Michel's styles with music they wouldnt have created on their own.
