Emi Honda and Jordan McKenzie grew up on opposite sides of the same ocean. Somehow the currents were strong enough to carry Emi from her home in southern Japan to southern Vancouver Island in Canada. Emi spent a lot of time gardening, collecting and making things. Meanwhile, Jordan was busy writing music and learning to build sound machines. 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.
