"Forced Endeavours Never More' is a piece I made using the flute sounds of a mellotron when testing out vintage musical equipment in Tokyo some time in 2008 - 2009. A part of the recording was used for the Rion album 'ホタル', although I actually made this as a live loop using a 14 second loop pedal (an Akai Headrush which is still my main pedal today) with a digital delay unit. It was recorded to my Fostex X-18 recorder in the store itself and I just love how it gently builds, plus that washed out mellotron flute...bliss.

Thank you.
