hamburg-based guitarist christoph funabashi and berlin-based guitarist torsten papenheim first met in 2010.
since then they have been working together on several occasions:

producing christoph's recording of john zorn's "book of heads" (2012),
christoph performing torsten's "shudder studies" for solo guitar (2015), ...
