Endurance: Shade Terrarium tape

This is my introduction to Endurance, even though he’s released over a dozen tapes since 2016. It’s clearly in the ambient zone-out realm, but it combines found sounds and rich tonal drifts, and it expands and travels rather than remaining in the same mode. It’s a bit cold and melancholy, but it’s not totally isolating. While the first side is a bit more melodic, it gets a bit crushed out by the second’s side “Itineranturum”. “Fluminam Ductur” sets chiming melodies over a storm of washed-out tape noise, and they manage not to get swept out.
