This duet for piano and computer is less geeky than the instrumentation suggests.

Typically, Wesseltoft (late of New Conception of Jazz) plays pretty keyboard patterns over rhythmic pulses and treatments programmed by Schwarz, as heard to best effect on "First Track (Live From Berlin)". Like superior chill-out music, it's always interesting but rarely compelling. You're left with an enhanced regard for what Kraftwerk did all those aeons ago.
