Culled from the first 2 "Improv Electronica"
collaborative gigs in 2004, this CD presents unique live jams by the 6
musicians of Endgame and The Planet Scanners (then unnamed, but since dubbed
The Scanner Game), that add up to a total pan generic mixture of styles.
Being purely free improvisation the mixture of styles is wide ranging, from
the cosmic and weird, via strange Dadaist connections and conflicts, on to
some space ethnic jazz and even some powerful synth rock. The 2 huge jams
worked great as live pieces, but for an album, it was decided that the best
choice elements could be better arranged to make a cohesive album of smaller
morsels. The results sound like album that could have been intentionally
composed, yet it all came together by chance!
