2004 Hobby Industries label 10-track full album issue.

When collaborating on their first Opto album, the way of working, was to send soundfiles back and forth Berlin and Copenhagen. This also became the idea for ?2nd? . Carsten got help from assistants to restore the recordings of the found magnetic audiotape, and passed the guitar files to Thomas, who then started working on beat structures, then adding recordings of a nearby forest. The recodings was made at different hours during two days, hence the tracktitles. This way it?s possible to listen to the album as one long track which guides you through 48 hours in about 40 min, or choose to pick the melodic and daylight bits from the more moody and static night productions.

2nd might not sound as either Alva Noto or Opiate solo, but definately as Opto, as the blend of dsp and glitch meets the old way of sampling concrete sounds. Following the first Opto release, ?2nd? still focus on minimal manipulation and a ban of trickery plug-in show off, while moving towards more balanced and structured layers
