Master drummer Jaki Liebezeit was very pleased that the craft of drum making has not changed much over the course of time. Be it that a skin is stretched over a drum with cords or bolts or be it that the skin is out of plastic or animal hide - the principle remains the same: Either enclose a hollow space without which there would be no sound (just imagine a drum filled with clay!).

The same applies to the perception of rhythm.
Everything is reduced to the essential: the hollow space in the centre.
It is the invisible that matters.

All tracks on the second DRUMS OFF CHAOS EP revolve around this vacant space in the middle.
A centre that is filled with - nothing.

The focus is on abstract, grooving drum music.
Rhythms are reduced to their elementary nucleus to such an extent that they can be perceived as clearly singular but also as universal.
And something emerges that follows universal laws such as gravity, ergonomics and acoustics.

"Play what the drum demands,” was one of Jaki’s sayings.
Together with him, DRUMS OFF CHAOS took this to heart.
The EP centres on rhythms that are based on simple numerical relationships allowing their richness to unfurl from within.
