TWO THIN EATING ONE FAT, Stockholm 2000. CD. (Firework Edition Records 1022)

”Swedish conceptualists Leif Elggren and Thomas Liljenberg have published Experiment With Dreams, a book of outlandish letters sent to politicians, film stars and business leaders, positing absurdist questions while claiming that they had stolen Elggren and Liljenberg’s dreams. For their part, the duo assert that their dreams intermingle, as though they were attempting to communicate to each other through their nightly visions. Any intrusions from outside were addressed in the letters found in Experiment With Dreams. Two Thin Eating One Fat appears to be much more personal documentation of their dream communication – it features recordings of themselves quietly mumbling through a number of meandering narratives marked by a strange political rhetoric and the repeated phrase, ”let me in”. Thick metallic drones, distant pounding drums and rhythmic exercises with a Piezo buzzer accompany and at times interrupt the ongoing murmur. Though these recordings were originally produced for various installations and performances, the collection is remarkably consistent articulation of their absurd intellect.” (Jim Haynes; The Wire 2001)

”Two Thin Eating One Fat” appears to be a much more personal documentation of Elggren’s and Liljenberg’s dream communication, as they have recorded themselves quietly mumbling meandering narratives which are marked by strange political rhetoric and the repeated phrase ”let me in.” Thick metallic drones, distant pounding drums, and rhythmic exercises with a piezo buzzer accompany and at times interrupt the ongoing spoken murmur. While all of these recordings found on ”Two Thin Eating One Fat” were originally produced for various collaborative installations and performances, there is remarkable consistency to this collection which articulates the absurdist intellect behind this artistic pairing.” (aquariusrecords, 2000)
