Orange Sleeve Variation.

Remixes and diversions of tracks from The Seduction Of Claude Debussy. This CD was initially sold as part of a repromotion of The Seduction Of Claude Debussy, shrinkwrapped together with a copy of the original digipak edition. It was available separately later.

Sleevenotes (edited):
"Reduction recorded in the opening month of the year 2000 at The Workshop, Willesden, north London … 1, 2, 3 and 5 were originally something else. 6 was originally "Something Is Something On The Way To Becoming Something Else". 4 just turned up. 2 is a true story … 2 includes traces of John Hurt and Sally Bradshaw."

"Please reduce me let me go."

There's also a French version of Reduction included in the French 2xCD Seduction/Reduction set (sleeve title Reduction, Wagram 2CD 3057312 in 2000). This inserts "Dreaming: Maroon" (10:18) as track 7, moving "And I Placed My Fingers..." to track 8.

Reduction was released with four different cover arts: all of them the simple face on a solid color background. The choices were blue (+ sign for mouth), orange (depicted above), yellow (solid block for mouth), and red (3 dots for the mouth).
