Alan Freeman: synths, guitar, voice, loops, bowed objects,
"C" is Cosmic, Confluent, Corrosive, Caustic, Celestial, Cerebral, and a Continuous Creation that lasts almost 65 minutes. Yes, that's 5 tracks that flow one directly into the other (that can also be listened to individually) amounting to one of the biggest oozing floating works that we've created. The range of tonalities is wide and often sonically incomprehensible. With bowed metal, processed organ and string synthesizers melding into deranged guitars and ring modulation. There's very little melodic focus, yet it is "musical" in the way that early Cluster was, teetering on the edge...
A very happy customer...
As regards "C" one very amazed "wow!" It was bound to be something special what with being Session 100 and everything but it really goes out there somewhere. The good thing about an Endgame release is that I can hear certain trademarks developing, Yet here they have completely vanished... This has to be the most unique release so far. Hints of Cluster 71 somewhere, but by the time we reach Brain Stalking Quotient we are in totally unknown territory. Admission price is worth it for this track alone. [Peter Smith]
