Jim: sound canvas, guitar, effects.
A complexly crafted one hour opus, culled from two
sessions on a wet and windy Wednesday night in November 2003. Mixed and
enhanced from the 4-track by Jim in 2005 and then finally carefully
reconstructed by Alan 5 years on from the initial recording. In keeping with
the weather both Alan and Steve opted to use lots of sound samples (nature
sound discs and tape loops) and unusually very little use of synthesizers,
with guitar and bass, along with lots of other gadgetry, processed with
ring-modulators and layers of echo and delay lines. Jim's role was chiefly to
hold it together with a melodic focus and that uniquely Endgame sound. Got an
hour to spare? Then submerge yourself in a weird sonic trip to the bottom of
the Earth's oceans, to the core, to inner and outer space and then back
again. Another uniquely different Endgame excursion. And, there is no random
splice - guaranteed!
