Layered asymmetry: With Alluvium, Stefan Goldmann explores new structural paths for machine
rhythm in irregular metres. Throughout the album, different non-binary patterns run simultaneously,
interlocking into twelve offerings of jagged polyrhythmic magic. Such a framework may juxtapose 11
on one axis, against 7 on another and 5 on a third - building stunningly iridescent edifices of
multidimensional time.

This is the third album in a series of "first principles" research of metric asymmetry. Veiki (2019) laid
the foundation for "real broken beat". Then, Vector Rituals (2022) explored the bending of grids in
order to yield idiosyncratic forms of organising time. Alluvium takes these two approaches and
expands them beyond their initial reach: Irregular patterns moving along parallel timelines within one
unifying grid.
