From The Beginning ... Until The End

(Misanthropic Agenda - MAR041) CD + CDR $20.00 (Out-of-stock)

This 2004-2005 collaboration by Yellow Swans’ Pete Swanson and Names’ Gerritt Wittmer is an exercise in time, challenging communication and the transfer of energy during improvisations via developing instrumentation that allowed one player to influence the other’s sound through direct routing. Much of the music is built on various feedback loops and other chains of chance. From The Beginning … Until The End is tape music, drone music, psychic music, and spiritual music. Like the sound of the universe, it undulates and folds unto itself, filled with transference and decadent illusion. Edition of 100 copies with a bonus CDR Live Testament, recorded at Il Corral in Los Angeles by Damion Romero.
