Double 180gm vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. In 2017, Richard Barbieri released his most sonically expansive work to date. Planets + Persona was his third solo album, but the first to feature such a wide pallet of instrumentation. Vintage analogue synthesizers combined with acoustic performances and jazz elements, including some stark and memorable improvisations from a personally hand-picked group of musicians, a release that has been greatly received by a dedicated and growing fan base. Variants. 3+4 is the second double LP to be released in a series presenting a collection of disparate pieces of music from past and current works. It features live performances with guest musicians Percy Jones, Luca Calabrese, Gill Morley, Lisen Rylander Löve and Suzanne Barbieri. It also contains six new studio recordings, including an intended Porcupine Tree intermission piece, a variation on themes written for PT's Black Dahlia, a significantly updated 2017 live version of the Japan B-Side The Experience Of Swimming, the evocative 1979 Rehearsal Room and a live version of Solar Sea from Planets + Persona.
