Nasra has been working with Gaute before as a live musician, but this collaboration project started out with the comissioned work "Computer Love" for the Festival of North Norway (Festspillene i Nord-Norge) in 2008. The collaboration has later expanded into more live-shows, and an album due for release autumn 2010.
