SJV     001     STEVE JANSEN : THE EXTINCT SUITE/CORRIDOR               2LP     08.2020

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.
