As was the case with two tracks that appeared on the 2012 mini-LP Music for Fragments (faitiche 08), Temple stems from a collaboration with French-Canadian choreographer Sylvain Emard. Temple is a re-worked excerpt of the music for the dance piece Fragments -- Volume I.
The Gesellschaft zur Emanzipation des Samples (G.E.S.) welcomes a new member. Helmut Schmidt samples his way through the middle-class canon of values and assembles collages of Messian and Debussy (or is that Bach and Milhaud?), which are once again played back in public spaces and recorded anew. A backdrop of gambling unites the recordings: the playback locations chosen by Helmut Schmidt are Geneva, Baden-Baden and Bad Homburg. A triumvirate of bourgeois casino tradition.
