Steve Jansen - Exit North
Exit North is the first release via Steve Jansen's exclusive download store.
A fourteen and a half minute instrumental combining electro-atmospherics, plaintive piano and Jansen's inimitable percussive/rhythmic touch, the piece climaxes with a beautifully uplifting, repeating Mimimalist sequence.
Exit North, available as an mp3 and a flac download, marks Steve's first official solo release since his celebrated Slope album in 2007.
Originally composed to accompany a visual performance entitled 'North' in 2010, the track remained unfinished and was subsequently completed in January 2013.
Please note that the opening minutes contain intentional digital distortion.
Steve Jansen's 'Exclusives' Mission Statement:
"The immediacy of releasing individual pieces through an exclusive music download store allows compositions that have reached a point of completion, (or that simply remain as unfinished works), to become available without pomp or ceremony.
This approach to sharing files is an extension of the way I have worked on my recordings with people around the globe.
The freedom to explore and experiment with audio sustains my interest in composition without the need to become embroiled in the concerns of format, release dates and music genres.
This is for me an exploration into the most simple and direct means of music distribution that supplements the desire for complete artistic freedom."
Exit North (14.34)
Composed, recorded and mixed by Steve Jansen at 'The Nest', London.
