Two and a Half Questions with Nest

First of all, what prompted the first physical release from Serein?
Although the music 'industry' and how people interact with music is changing a lot, it still felt like the label could only go so far operating as a non-profit venture. Not only is it very difficult to get noticed by press without physical albums, it's also difficult to attract artists who've already made a name for themselves through more mainstream avenues. In making this change I hope to make the label known to a wider audience.

How did you first come about collaborating with Otto Totland?
The project grew quite organically over a long period of time. We became friends as former members of the Miasmah label maybe ten years or so ago. We started swapping music via the internet around that time. Musically we share very similar backgrounds, we both play the piano and we listened to very similar music during our formative years.
