Keyboardist Kristopher Pooley has joined up with this team, a veteran touring musician with credits from Jane's Addiction to Liz Phair. Kristopher relies on MOTU products to get the job done, especially when he's on the road.

Dubbed "Orchestre Baka de Gbiné", the group has been recorded on location in the African forest using Digital Performer, the 828mkII and the Traveler.
