Material gathered from two of Steve Jansen's solo releases The Extinct Suite and Corridor. The Extinct Suite is the third solo album release from Steve Jansen. A reinterpretation of the more ambient and orchestral elements of Tender Extinction (Jansen's second solo album). Not a remix by any means, some familiar passages are woven together with additional pieces to create a suite of instrumentals lasting over 55 minutes as one single track split over Sides A and B of this double-LP album. Corridor is a slowly evolving instrumental piece designed for playback in a gallery space with uncontrolled acoustics and no sound insulation. Avoiding percussive and complicated bass content this audio is designed to float in a live space at low level volume allowing sonic variations to subtly stimulate the ambience. Original installation at the Cape Breton University Art Gallery, Canada to accompany a photo exhibition titled "Through A Quiet Window" by Steve Jansen May 11 to July 6, 2018. Split over Sides C and D of this double-LP. Personnel: Steve Jansen - piano, synths, guitar, drums, sampled instruments, string arrangements, sound design. Additional contributors - Melentini Toila - trumpet; Seigen Tokuzawa - cello; Thomas Feiner - background vocals; Stelios Romaliadis - flute; Giorgos Varoutas - guitar treatments; Charlie Storm - additional sound recording on Corridor. All Music composed, performed, produced, and mixed by Steve Jansen. Artwork by Anna Malina Zemlianski. Design by Carl Glover for Aleph Studio. 180 gram vinyl; edition of 500.
