the drummer as loop generator. sequencing twisting, distorting and dubbing the beats in a more modern and electronic mode. the set builds to the expansive dubout of the penultimate track `these are our faithful timekeepers' (check it out on the playout vinyl cut on `selection one'), giving way to the surprise dynamics and interplay between kit, electronics and double bass.  
Au delà de la texture linéaire généralement attribuée à la batterie, c’est au contraire son potentiel cellulaire qui est mis au service de répétitions, boucles, recyclages à volonté. La batterie devient sample, le sample devient instrument, tous les coups sont permis pour confondre les doubles rythmiques et faire émerger une physicalité nouvelle, des nuances inattendues.
