The “strange attractors” of the orders of chaos that appear on this record are, therefore, Carneiro's marimba (his main instrument) and Pinheiro's piano, and if it is true that the timbre factor is of paramount importance in this context, the two musicians they define their interaction in the purpose – spontaneous, intuitive, improvised, remember – of building harmonic situations from rhythmic impulses, generously amplified, or contradicted, by the strings.
