Before their first concert, Thibaut and Isang went to RTÉ Radio Centre to record a session for Arena on RTÉ Radio 1 - you can listen to their full interview here. The duo were also featured in 5 Glossy Things To Do This Weekend for their concerts in Cork, Waterford, Tralee, Clifden and Dún Laoghaire.

 

The performance at The Large Room in Waterford received two reviews, Liam Murphy of Munster Express described the programme as "a wonderful mix of jazz, baroque, dance, contemporary, a new commission, an opera Intermezzo, a zap of Frank Zappa and a rock and jazz of King Crimson."
