More information: ‘Rattrapante’ is a collection of 5 songs about our interaction with time; we measure it, but yet waste it more, it defines our existence and forms our memories. Some seek to beat it by being the first or the fastest and some can appear to outlive time itself through their achievements.
“The idea for the album was inspired from from my work with mechanical watches. Rattrapante is a French word deriving from ‘rattraper’ meaning ‘to catch up' or recapture. A Rattrapante chronograph can simultaneously time two events such as a lap split time and a final race time”, explains Robin Armstrong. “It was the perfect metaphor for our own interaction with time.”
As with previous Cosmograf releases, the album features Robin Armstrong playing most of the instruments with Kyle Fenton on drums, but with a special guest performance from Chrissy Mostyn from The Blackheart Orchestra and additional voiceover from Tommy McNally.
