Ambient intro to high activity that slowly declines
From about three quarters of an hour into our 05 Dec 2009 gig at the Luna Lounge, E11. Ahh, the peaceful but commanding drumless intro. Actually you can hear them right at the beginning bleeding into Mike's pickup. We were switching in and out of energetic sections. Well, I was anyway, although making a conscious effort not to smother the sound in cymbal, inevitably succumbing later on. Mike maintains his dignified stately swelled guitar ambience, under which Nick and I do the Improvizone-grade pigs-in-shit rhythm section thing, not exactly jazz fusion funk, but busy by our standards. Chas starts off with zippy rhythm guitar, before moving back to slower picked embellishments. The piece tapers out very slowly, I almost chopped out a whole chunk, but I like the increasingly abstract drawn-out tailing off of this one, sounding like it will develop into something else as I slowly bring the faders down for good.
