Yup, Adrian goes crazy to extract whatever sound he's shooting for. Especially the title track - a rather nice confluence of conservationism and an excuse to make animal sounds.

BD, there is still an element of melody when you play a single stroke on a snare drum, despite a strong element of noise (no idea if it's white or pink noise - or purple for that matter). After all, if you hit a rimshot, it's a higher pitched note.

Melody certainly can exist without comprehensible rhythm (the qualifier you used). Think Tangerine Dream or Stomu Yamashta or Frippertronics or John Cage.
