A slightly bizarre pairing of two regarded musicians, in the form of pianist turned electronic composer "Robert Miles", and celebrated percussionist "Trilok Gurtu". Here they are collaborating on a joint effort that encompasses everything from creative Jazz, to melodic electronic breakbeat. The dynamics behind this are relatively simple: Miles provides the musician soundspaces, keyboards, melodies, breaks and string arrangments, and Gurtu provides his quite staggeringly array of tabla, snare, drums, clay pot & percussive beats either, over the top or subtly texturing the sound with compelling rhythms. (with the help of various artists such as `Nitin Sawhney' on guitar & `Adrian Bradbury' on cello).
