The session notes say "start of bowed springs
sessions" although there's a lot more going on in these recordings, but
very little in the way of synths compared to most Endgame sessions. The
avant-classical meets industrial feel of much of it lent perfectly to sonic
concrete manipulation, adding lots of depth to the sound, and expanding 55
minutes of material to 66 minutes! Here we have Xenakis with the attitude of
Lightwave, Dumitrescu crossed with the essence of freeform Kosmische
Krautrock. By the way, the use of Abtraction here is in the sense of "to
make one thing out of another"
