The Memory Pool / Revealing the Secret
Steve Roach, Vidna Obmana
2008 steveroach.com (CD) – Ultra-Limited Edition (80 sets)

First released as a limited edition of 2000 in 1998, the 3-CD box set ASCENSION OF SHADOWS: MEDITATIONS FOR THE MILLENNIUM quickly sold out, and has remained a highly-desired prize for Roach and Obmana fans. The intentions for creating a place of solace for what the artists were sensing, with the approaching anticipation of the year 2000 and beyond, feels especially potent and nourishing when heard now. SOMEWHERE ELSE, the first disc in the box set was re-released in 2005. The original plan was to release the second and third discs over time, but this plan was altered because of a steady flow of new music that Steve and Projekt wanted to focus upon. Recently, Projekt discovered 80 sets of the original pressing of the second and third discs, "The Memory Pool" and "Revealing the Secret". These are now being presented in a DVD-sized case. There are no plans to bring these back into print after these are gone; this is the final stash!

First released as a limited edition of 2000 in 1998, the 3-CD box set ASCENSION OF SHADOWS quickly sold out, and has remained a highly-desired prize for Roach and Obmana fans. In response to consistent requests, Projekt has initiated a reissue series which will present each disc as its own release, using John Cagian principles: the release dates are hinged upon when PRO177, PRO188 and PRO199 arrive on Projekt's release schedule.

The first release in the series is the long-form piece "Somewhere Else". This track is without doubt among the most serene, purely atmospheric and non-threatening of Roach and Obmana's recorded work together, and was originally presented in the ASCENSION OF SHADOWS 3-CD box set, which was subtitled "Meditations For the Millennium". The intentions for creating a place of solace for what the artists were sensing, with the approaching anticipation of the year 2000 and beyond, feels especially potent and nourishing when heard now.

The next chapter in the collaborative work between Steve Roach and Vidna Obmana is sure to delight those who appreciate the more serene, atmospheric side of their work together. On Ascension, the artists return to a more minimal core of sounds and approaches to reveal an atmosphere that flows for over three hours. As the acceleration toward the new century builds, this music offers a space for repose so needed these days.
