The End is the work for those who just can’t wait. It features an hour long video montage of over 100 epic Hollywood film endings from 1950s brought together to form one relentlessly grand ending. Including classics such as “The African Queen" (1951), "The Seven Year Itch" (1957) and "North by North-west" (1959), the work becomes a constant barrage of climaxes, which don’t quite pack the punch of the grand solo ending.
The epic soundtrack features music by Leonard Rosenman sampled from the finale of the 1955 film "East of Eden". Rosenman’s signature ending was an orchestral climax known as the ‘pyramid ending’. These few seconds of music have been cut-up and reconfigured; the outcome is what can only be described as a ‘stuck climax’. Hence, The End never ends.
