liner notes: Simon Berz, together with the label Badabum, initiiated at the new train station of the Swiss town Zug an interaction between the VJs Pfadfinderei, sound designer Andrew Phillips and the musicians Bruno Amstad (voc/electronics), Hanspeter Pfammatter (keys/electronics), Jesus TuriЦo (bass/electronics), Tsukiko Amakawa (keys), Markus Breuss (trumpet/electronics) and Simon Berz (drums/electronics/concept).Before the train station was handed over to its regular function, the hall was to be used in an artistic way. The VJs used well known material of the SBB (the Swiss railways). The musicians played by a musical synchronised timetable, which constantly generated new compositions. Train announcements conducted their appearances.Every 12 minutes, train announcements marked the beginning or end of a musician`s appearance. After each hour, the musicians boarded a different "train". In this way, new musical combinations were formed continuously. On this night, for once trains from all over the world passed through, until, at 6 am, the train station was handed over to its regular function.
