2022 Transmission reissue of the classic instrumental compilation from the legendary Porcupine Tree.
“Voyage 34,” an instrumental composition from 1992/93, is a journey split into 4 phases that rocks for over an hour, this 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, “Voyage 34” 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).
This double LP version features the tracks remastered by Steven Wilson (in 2016) with more naturalistic dynamics and EQ (remasters previously 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 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.“
