Porcupine Tree Voyage 34 CD Steven Wilson Transmission
2022 Transmission label CD reissue of the classic instrumental compilation from Porcupine Tree.
 
Split into four phases that last for over an hour, Voyage 34 was PT's entry into the ambient trance genre popularised by artists such as the Orb. Combining trance rhythms alongside more typical Porcupine Tree textures and guitar solos, the piece was a big hit in the ambient/chill out club scene of the early 1990s (when it was originally issued across two 12 inch singles).
 
Features the 2016 Steven Wilson remaster - with more naturalistic dynamics and EQ - rpreviously only available in The Delerium Years 1991 - 1993 box set.
 
The artwork was completely redesigned for the original re-release and contains new images from long-term collaborator Lasse Hoile
 
In Wilson’s own words, “The whole point about Voyage 34 was an exercise in genre. In that sense it stands apart from the rest of the catalogue...back in the early Nineties, there was an explosion in ambient music, a fusion of electronic music and techno music with the philosophy of people like Brian Eno and Tangerine Dream.“
