Apparently following the maxim “why make it simple when you could make it complicated”, Tool have built their album around a very elaborate calculation. Criticised by some for repeating themselves, the group mathematically prove the opposite in this confusing Lateralus. Alive 800 years ago, it was thanks to the mathematician Leonardo Fibonacci that you read that as ‘800’ and not ‘DCCC’ (he used Hindu-Arabic numerals instead of Roman numerals). He also defined the sequence that bears his name and that Tool have used for their third album. The principle is quite straightforward: except for the first two numbers, each number is found by adding up the two preceding numbers.


Beyond being a mathematical breakthrough, this sequence (which is closely linked to the golden ratio) is found all over the universe, from snail shells to galaxies, as well as cyclones, pineapples and even ratios used in technical analysis of the financial market... Tool’s intelligent band members applied their passion for Fibonacci to their compositions, under the guidance of drummer Danny Carey. But you don’t have to be a genius to appreciate Tool’s enchanting music. Regardless of their unique technical complexity, each of the thirteen (a Magic Number!) solid yet nuanced tracks carry you away like waves. And each time you listen, you are swept further away from the shore and everything you thought you knew. © Jean-Pierre Sabouret/Qobuz

In your panoramas...
Curtis Mayfield, in a League of his Own

Aesthete guitar player worshiped by Jimi Hendrix, extraordinary falsetto singer revered by Prince, and a brilliant songwriter, Curtis Mayfield treated melodies as a master sculptor. His songs melded funk, gospel and soul together. Twenty years after his death, his politically charged music is still relevant and well-suited to describe America under Donald Trump.

The Doors, Jim Morrison’s Orchestra

Fifty years ago, on 3 July 1971, Jim Morrison died mysteriously in a Parisian bathtub, survived by his three partners: Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger and John Densmore, who had worked tirelessly for six years to translate his dreams into music.
