As the currents grew stronger, they met, at first through art, each recognizing unmistakable similarities in the others work. Soon they were playing music together, busking in the streets of Victoria. They also began to collaborate in making art installations (often working with Scott Evans). They recorded far & few, and Emi joined Jordan's prog-folk/sound project, sound stories.
Working with Rachael Wadham, they put together their epic story, the spiral ship, and attemped touring around the pacific northwest. Perhaps taking the road less travelled too often to be beneficial, they remained in the peripheries of the music world, rarely being noticed head-on. As things grew quiet, Emi and Jordan grew restless in Victoria and decided to push off to Montreal. In the process of moving, they developed a new, compact musical set-up, along with a more stripped down sound.
