The original inspiration for the album came from a 1940's National Film Board of Canada movie about the Trans-Canada Express railway. Influenced by the motorik rhythms of Neu and Harmonia, the dynamics of Faust and Amon Düül II and the atmospherics of Ash Ra Tempel, T-CE!, was written and recorded at CCTV Studios, Montreal in summer 2012.

Starting with improvised pieces of music, the rhythms and sounds of a train were re-created through layers of loops, echoes, and tape delays to capture the panoramic experience of travelling from east Canada to the west coast.

T-CE! is an album about movement through time and space, about leaving the past behind and finding new landscapes, but also with nostalgia for what is left behind in the process of transgression.
