This type of sound is a direct descendent of the [ aleatori or chance music from the 50s and 60s. The Books take on the style is much more melodic, but none-the-less, it is always extremely interesting and fun to listen to. [[Nick Zammuto|Zammut and [[Paul de Jong|de Jon met in Northern Manhattan in 2000, and have been collaborating in one way or another ever since. They are currently residing in a working studio in the Berkshire Mountains of North Adams, Massachusetts.
