Hi Steve, great to hear the new releases, remixed Tender Extinction. Did you consider asking others to re-mix it as you did with Slope originally? Or did you prefer to re-mix it yourself ?

I didn’t consider ‘Tender Extinction’ to be remix material, instead I wanted to extend the compositional potential of the more ambient and orchestral elements¬†into a new, stand-alone work. I’ve always favoured the concept of lengthy instrumental pieces but never quite had the strategy to combine electronics with orchestration, however I realised that in subtracting the song content from ‘Tender Extinction’ there was good potential for this combination to work. The music meanders through different changes in such a way that a soundtrack might, with each passage setting a scene and perhaps enhancing the desire to be lost in ones own thoughts or imaginations.
