On Gare du Nord, we were both playing around with melody ideas up until the date of we'd set for recording horns. Because both of us had a melody written at the date, and we both liked each others' melodies as well as our own, we decided to record both.

In the end, we used them both too. What you hear in the tune is just one melody on top of the other. The first time you hear them it's just the pure takes, very simple and straightforward. Then, they come back again in an edited form, all chopped up and bits moved around. A different but related melody, constructed from edited fragments of the parts as they were played. In part, it was an exercise in working with the idea of acoustic integrity first, and then disregarding integrity entirely, editing with wild abandon, and making none of the usual attempts to hide the manipulation.
