This edition was produced and finalized in a particular context, Mika Vainio having left us on 12.04.2017.
     This material is the last concert he gave. It took place at Cave12 on 02.02.2017.
     We needed time to listen to this archive again, which we did in situ in June 2020 with Cindy Van Acker. After this listening, we felt invested in having to make this archive public.
     In order to work on this material, we asked Carl Michael von Hausswolff to do the editing. He extended the invitation to Stephen O’Malley who kindly joined in and headed the process to execute the pre-master in August 2020 at EMS, Stockholm, Sweden. At our request, this recording was organized in 4 movements. Denis Blackham did the mastering at Skye Mastering, Scotland.
     This process was carried out in collaboration with Rikke Lundgreen.
     Released in association with Editions Mego, Vienna.
     Thanks to Rikke Lundgreen, Cindy Van Acker, Franz Graf, Atte Vainio.
