‘All Is For The Best In The Best Of All Possible Worlds’ documents Ollie Bown and Sam Britton’s continued exploration into the world of live electronic music performance and presents new material worked up during the course of their European tour in the summer of 2009 to promote the Icarus remix album ‘Sylt Remixes’.
Probably the best encapsulation of how their music has been influenced by the combined forces of improvisation (in performance) and reflection (in the sense of both compositional techniques and software development to enable such performances), the record itself is perhaps their most incisive to date.
