In 2012, Glenn Bach and Steve Roden were invited to create a live soundtrack to Bleu Remix, a performance-installation by Yann Marussich, where the artist reclines inside a glass box, and, over time, begins to sweat blue pigment from the pores in his skin, manifesting the act of movement by remaining perfectly still.

Using source files provided by Marussich, Bach and Roden created a palette of sonic material for the evening's performance, transforming the original sounds beyond recognition. During the concert, Bach and Roden processed the sounds yet again, live, as the audience contemplated Marussich reclining, and sweating, in his glass vitrine.

The resulting concert recordings inspired a subsequent studio session in Roden's garage, where the artists improvised an entirely new interpretation of the sound sources throughout the various stages of transformation. The resulting performance was recorded live with no overdubs.
