endecade (1) 01:40:00
endecade (2) 01:40:00


endecade is a continuous 200 minute long field recording captured in the last hours of the dying decade towards midnight, as 2020 approached in the guise of a riderless horse of smoke and flame. In it are endings and decays and cadences: dressed up in quietness and revelry.

The piece was recorded, unattended, at subzero temperatures in a suburban back garden somewhere in Edinburgh.

The download is broken into two 'parts' of exactly 100 minutes each to accommodate Bandcamp's upload limits, although I consider this a single piece. The tracks are encoded as 48 kHz 24-bit FLAC.

Note that this is entirely a single stereo field recording. There is no instrumentation, nor any other sounds.


released January 2, 2020

Recorded in Edinburgh in the closing hours of 31 December 2019.
