Enzym pursues his composition work through minuscule fragments. While he was creating the elementary sounds that populate Archaeabacteria, his first album, a question arose between his keyboards and eardrums which has never left him; could an even more elemental fragment still be considered music? Enzym sings primitive hymns where glitches, cutouts, naive melodies and ecstatic piano chords meet. Using repetition, symbiosis and mutations, he propels these initial fragments towards a choreographic destiny.
