A collection of diverse fragments and choice pieces from three different sessions. It seems that we were into pure experimentation and trying out lots of new ideas in winter 2003/4. There are musical concoctions here that even I've never heard before. In all, it amounts to some of the weirdest Endgame ever, some of it like sonic meteor collisions rendered with the most bizarre sounds imaginable. Yet there are still moments of pure beauty. The familiar meets the unfamiliar, there's a surprise around every corner!
