An abstract duo in which the macro-structure, perpetually-varying meters, and moment-to-moment rhythmic activity are all generated by ("refracted" through) the prime-number series. Its atmosphere is populated by an array of essentially discontinuous motifs, articulated within and through an elastic time-space - where rhythm, meter, and tempo virtually lose their separate identities.
