Layered asymmetry: With Alluvium, Stefan Goldmann explores new structural paths for machine rhythm in irregular meters. Throughout the album, different non-binary patterns run simultaneously, interlocking into twelve offerings of jagged polyrhythmic magic. Such a framework may juxtapose eleven on one axis, against seven on another and five 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 (MACROM 059CD, 2019) laid the foundation for "real broken beat." Then, Vector Rituals (2022) explored the bending of grids in order to yield idiosyncratic forms of organizing time. Alluvium takes these two approaches and expands them beyond their initial reach: irregular patterns moving along parallel timelines within one unifying grid.
