Nik Haffner, choreographer, dancer and educator from Berlin joins the team as research collaborator.

A Sneak Peak at their score content: "The duets of Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion were recorded as many selected fragments. In the online score this collection has been expanded with our own 'performers' and 'generators' that have been built from information about the duet creation process of Burrows and Fargion. Along with these ever ongoing performance recordings from all their duets, insights into their score notebooks and interviews with them are available." Florian Jenett & Amin Weber
