'Beat 2' is a rhythm/melody and piano/bass dialogue, a Pierre-Jean Trouette and Tom Terrien's symbol of visions and ways of playing of these first members of the former duo which became today a quintet, Minimal Orchestra.
This track began with a game of rhythmic experiments around the drum machine of Tom Terrien. The second beat created, inspires him to improvise on the Rhodes a very classic jazz theme, as 'theme, solo, theme, end'.
'Beat 2' is the constant beat of the track, a driving pulse that runs through the thread of this evolving, sometimes explosive, frenetic construction around the rhythmic and harmonic contrast, the timbre of the double bass and the bass.
