As if an incantantory ritual, Drums Off Chaos and MARIA DE ALVEAR create "acoustic images"
The inherent spirit of the object - the essence of the tree comes to life through the interplay of
voice and drums, assuming a clear shape in the listener’s mind.
MARIA DE ALVEAR’s colourful and expressive singing and the repititive, instistent
rhythms provided by the Drums Off Chaos work towards the same musical idea: from the specific
material of each, unusual, highly differentiated sounds are created that combine in space to an independent entity.
