"Two By Four" is some kind of musical summation of the evolution of Piano Interrupted over the past three years, from an exclusively studio project (centered around the manipulation of Tom's piano by Franz’s computer) to a fully-fledged live band with the addition of Greg Hall on the cello and Eric Young on percussion.

Some of the tracks on the album have appeared in various forms on previous releases, but the spirit of the band is one of exploration, mutation, recycling and reinventing and the album documents this journey and how the music has evolved though the years. "Etude" and "London Waltz" are more representative of the early days of Piano Interrupted. Recorded as a duo, they are a blend of subtle electronica, skewed rhythms and unusual time signatures, the sonics are arguably more cold and the electronic arrangements more prominent. The rest of the material on the record is played as a quartet, and reflects the progressive change the compositions have undergone through live performance and studio experiments.

Three of the tracks (Hedi, Hobi, Bulbus) have a distinctly Tunisian feel as Piano Interrupted were asked to write the score to 'Papa Hedi'- a intimate documentary film about the life and times of Hedi Jouni, the 'Frank Sinatra' of Tunisia, as told by his grand- daughter. They had access to Hédi Jouni's original recordings, and samples of his music were used as starting point for the compositions. Mastering the whole album with Nils Frahm in Berlin was an important decision Tom and Franz made: "We wanted to finish the record with someone we felt close to in terms of sensibility and who is not only a technician but a great musician and artist- we knew it would give a extra special coherence to the record."

With cinematic piano, dreamy soundscapes, fragile and broken melodies colliding over complex rhythm structures, it's difficult to categorise the musical style of Piano Interrupted. It seems to vary from EP to EP, gig to gig, track to track, even from bar to bar. There are nods to minimalism, film scores and cinematic soundscapes, glitch and ambient, post-rock, neo-classical piano and jazz...
