This project was initiated by Sol Léna-Schroll and Clément Merienne.

Deeply inspired by the music of Benoît Delbecq, Eve Risser and Christian Wallumrød, their music is a mix between improvisation and composition, of entangled rhythms and drones, giving the listener the sensation of entering an unsettling, yet oddly familiar sonic world

For this new project, the symmetrical instrumentation places the drums at the centre of the band; the music revolves around rhythmic cycles, from which structures, harmony and sound are derived.

For this purpose, they brought together the Canadian pianist Matt Choboter, Belgian drummer Samuel Ber, and the French trumpetist Hector Léna-Schroll. They all share the same approach to improvisation and composition, as well as a great freedom and detachment on complex rhythmic music.
