Buttercup Metal Polish

The duo Buttercup Metal Polish (BMP) is composed by Nicolas Field and Alexandre Babel (drums and percussions/CH). The duo was born in late 2002, from the desire to give drums music a new dimension.

From the outset, the idea was to unify two trends: one, from a classical culture of contemporary music called "academic" and another from improvised music based on a large formal and stylistic aperture. In this way, drums may extend, renew and become a subject to experimentation on a game mode and real orchestra. Based on this idea, the duo decided to explore the possibilities of drums, through extended and new playing techniques, sometimes of his own invention.
