Colin Edwin has confirmed the release of Brilliant Waves, the first album from his latest project Endless Tapes.
He and colleague Alessandro ‘Petrol’ Pedretti have launched a video for lead track Terminal 1 from the record, which follows their self-titled EP.
Porcupine Tree bassist Edwin says: “We chose the name ‘Endless Tapes’ since it reflects the many possibilities of the music.
“Given the cyclic elements in a lot of the compositions, I prefer to think of these recordings on Brilliant Waves as snapshots of particular decisions we made at the time. Playing the music in a live environment before we recorded really opened up a lot of the tunes – we could have gone in a number of directions.”
He adds: “The best analogy I can give is to think of taking a series of photographs of a moving disc or wheel. In the finished picture you will recognise a wheel, but you might catch it anywhere in its rotation.”
