This is awesome - sounds like a lot more than two musicians, really listening to and engaging with each other, texturally, rhythmically, sonically, spatially. Music to immerse yourself in. Full of ideas. Slightly unexpectedly, quite often music you'd like to listen to with someone else in bed Andrew Webb
