The Drake Equation is the basis of mankind turning its 'listening ear' towards the universe. similarly, these recordings are the 'listening ear' toward locational distance and the temporal sonic future of This Morn' Omina.

Like the [ccf], [ecf] tackles a subject in shortened form.
The difference being that and [ecf] is a release where each track deals with the same concept but did not go to the extent of making it a full album.

Hence [ecf] = 'extended commercial format'.

Original presstext:

The parameters of the equation are linked to the track indexes but they should not be considered as song-titles. they are related to the definitions of the equation but are not strict representations of them.

Several new elements have been added to the recording process; the most noticeable is the use of live percussion as the basis and the finishing of each track. Here sal-ocin (empusae) has been an integral and essential part of the recording and creational process.

Between the intro and the outro tracks, the direction is set: rhythmic powerplay, from slow percussion backings to hard-driving fast drum beats. both tribal and techno influences are - once more - beautifully combined and fused into one dense, entraining sound.

"in the silence of dead monitors, the hardcopy hums into trays, signal after signal from the chaos, the various voices are collected, and after the final signal, one can listen and wait for the encoded call of the void..."
