SWIMS, or the symmetric electronic music by the swiss musician Arthur Hnatek
SWIMS is a set of semi-improvised electronica with, at its core, the rhythmical pulsated drummer-mind.
"Carrying the listener through soundscapes that are simultaneously trance-inducing and rhythmic, drummer Arthur Hnatek debuts his solo EP “ELLE” under his electronic project SWIMS. While the samples and textures evolve slowly over time, Hnatek's aesthetic and original style are clearly on the forefront throughout." (Susan Records)
