Boomkat Product Review:
Material gathered from two of Steve Jansen's solo releases 'The Extinct Suite' and ‘Corridor’.
"'The Extinct Suite’ - 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 & B of this 2LP album. // ‘Corridor' - 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 & D of this 2LP album. Steve Jansen - Piano, Synths, Guitar, Drums, Sampled Instruments, String Arrangements, Sound Design. The Extinct Suit 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’.
