“What do elephants dream of ? Tuba trunks being played full blast, bursts of sonorous modesty, squawking – wooded poetry – rustling skins, reverberating cords, imaginary dancers, pulsation, blow, rubbing, blow, breathe, blow, pauze.What do elephants dream of ? Of the jungle, of course. Duke’s jungle ? The DJs’ ? Ellington would never have abjured this dense, vital stickiness. Sound manipulators find their witching gear in it too.Digitised elephants’ Dreams add a new hue to the jazz spectrum, a desire for water and mist, a novel way of revitalising order from noise.Under the stones: Eden, the real thing, the other side of God’s graveyard: snaking rhythms, surging solitude, ritual ceremony, fissure, encompassing rhythm. Poles apart from daily semantic rape and ivory dealers, such dreamlike and telluric interlacing yield a new virginity. Watering place for unhinged sounds. Visions of acoustic rave in the land of swinging baobabs. A scathing attack.” (Jean-Pol Schroeder)
