"Alexander's Annexe is an ensemble comprised of three distinct artists, Mira Calix, David Sheppard & Sarah Nicolls and Push Door to Exit is their debut release. Having met whilst on tour with the London Sinfonietta, Alexander's Annexe began working on a composition commissioned by Italy's Ravello Festival that fused instruments with electronics. Push Door To Exit is a beautiful yet mysterious piece of music composed entirely on the piano. It overturns all preconceptions you may have about the grandest instrument in the classical lexicon! Composed, unconventionally, with Sarah Nicolls playing the piano, Mira Calix creating recordings from inside the piano & manipulating sounds with a microphone and David feeding the piano and overall mix into his computer & developing the results. At just under 30 minutes in length, this specially-priced limited edition is an essential composition for avant garde/classical music fans." Limited Warp UK-only release.
