Sept 1, 2004 Ex Uno Plures
Here’s an outtake of the never-quite-sounded-like-this variety.[endtease] It dates from Crimson’s rehearsals back in September 2004 – a ProjeKct XL (L for Levin, folks) if you will. Knitted together by Pat Mastelotto with close encounters of the Bill Munyon kind, it quickly gets in an expansive groove. Given the way it was constructed the Ex Uno, Plures title (literally "From one, many) is exceedingly apt.
Pat recalls “It was from our second get-together with TLev at Adrian’s place with Ken (Latchney) recording stuff. I took a copy and dived into it ala ProjeKct 3. Bill and I worked on these jams on and off for a several months and then took a break. Time marched on and a year or so later I went back to it but the drive wouldn’t open. I tried two different LaCie housings, and even gave it to an E-session tech pal but nobody could get it to boot, and so it got put back on the shelf.”
