The first contact between Charlemagne Palestine and the Sonnabends took place in Paris with Simone Forti. It was 1972 and collaboration immediately started. Some time after the composer gave up performances and his sculpture was presented more in Europe than America. At the end of the 1990s a new meeting happened and the Sonnabends announced that they had decided to leave Soho for a bigger space in Chelsea and proposed again for Charlemagne Palestine to create a disc.

Charlemagne Palestine (born Chaim Moshe Tzadik Palestine) is a performance artist from New York. Born in Brooklyn, New York in 1947, Palestine began by singing sacred Jewish music and studying accordion and piano. At the age of 12 he started playing backup conga and bongo drums for Allen Ginsberg, Gregory Corso, Kenneth Anger, and Tiny Tim. From 1962–69 Palestine was daily carillonneur for the Saint Thomas Episcopal Church in Manhattan, eventually creating a piece that consisted of 1,500 15 minute performances. Continuous Sound Forms.

Fondation Charlemagne Palestine is at Park Avenue Armory.
