"Into The Maelström, Vol. 2: Down The Corridor. LIVE: July 22, 2012" is the fourth solo release from Pennsylvania-based ambient guitarist/bassist/Chapman Stickist Har.

"Into The Maelström" is an ongoing series of long form, live-in-the-studio solo dark ambient improv sets, usually performed during Har’s weekly online dark-ambient radio show "Nightscaping" on Stillstream.Com (Sunday nights at 5:30PM Eastern / 4:30PM Central).

"Vol. 2: Down The Corridor" was recorded and broadcast live to listeners world-wide on Sunday, July 22nd, 2012 in Har's studio "Ice Station Zebra" as part of "Triple Live (Ambient) Gonzo", a "broadcast live test run" for an in-venue solo performance night that occurred a week later.

It was performed entirely on his 8-string electric guitar, an extended-range instrument with two additional bass-range strings along with the other typical six guitar strings. No synths were used.
The resulting sounds are highly processed and looped in real-time using an arsenal of hardware effects and pedals.

Different drums/percussion phrases were programmed and recorded ahead of time, then triggered on-the-fly using a looper pedal during the course of the set. The actual full set was bit longer, but due to recording issues earlier in the track, "Vol. 2: Down The Corridor" has been edited down to a shorter length.

Har's music has been played on such well-known ambient/space-music radio shows as NPR's legendary Hearts of Space and Stars End, as well as online stations such as Stillstream.Com.
