Title: Movement 1
Vinyl: Sold Out
Description: This magnificent two part 10” set by Clusters is a direct collaboration between members of An Ending Ascend and Minus Pilots respectively. Using their six-string electric basses, EBows, volume controllers, several effects devices and a Revox reel-to-reel tape machine, the idea behind the project was that each bassist would send the other an email containing basic concepts with which to start a composition. Minus Pilots’ minimalist offerings are grounded in a more theoretical mindset, functioning structurally applying arpeggios, scales, chords, etc. whereas An Ending Ascend’s contributions lean more towards the sculpting of played out drone tapestries, exploring a wide variety of properties. Operating at profound levels of communication, the experiments included here render grandiose spaces for the imagination to drift unconstrained, coloured by spectral tonal shades and trembling with the most tactile atmospherics. The end result is quite incredible. Exemplary work from both parties and an essential purchase.
