Day Out of Time
10th Anniversary Deluxe Edition with 'Time of the Earth'

Steve Roach
2012 Projekt PRO272 (Video)
Reviewed by Richard Gurtler

Elegantly repackaged for its 10th anniversary, DAY OUT OF TIME (Deluxe Edition) includes a special value-added DVD: Steve Lazur's film TIME OF THE EARTH: A Desert Dreamtime Journey. For the first time, the film and its CD soundtrack are presented in one cohesive package. As an added bonus, THE DREAM CIRCLE is included as an alternate audio track on the DVD.

The power of the desert has been a core inspiration of Roach's work, and this release presents a compendium of tracks recorded at the zenith of that period. As a comprehensive overview of Steve's influential tribal-ambient and desert-ambient soundworlds, DAY OUT OF TIME weaves together classic tracks along with out-of-print and hard-to-find pieces.

Sustained and expansive, the atmospheric majesty of this soundtrack represents some of Steve's finest work in the tribal-ambient genre. In the midst of a deeply stratified soundscapes, dynamic earthbound tribal percussion passages rise up from the landscape under the shadows of billowing, glass-bottomed clouds. Part tribal, part haunting drifts, and purely time suspending, the release is essential Steve Roach. Like the stone monuments and forever vistas that inspired the music, this release majestically stands up to the test of time. It sounds as if it emanates from deep desert canyons in a realm from the near future or ancient past.

Never before available in stores, the DAY OUT OF TIME audio CD and its companion DVD paints visceral soundworlds from vast desert vistas, jagged peaks, and iconic stone pinnacles carved by wind, sand, and water into fantastic alien sculptures. The music tells the wordless story of the desert dreamtime.

For electronic music aficionados, established as well as new Steve Roach fans, DAY OUT OF TIME -- with its companion DVD TIME OF THE EARTH -- is a vital and rewarding listening and viewing experience.

1999 Timeroom Editions 3 (CD)
Reviewed by Dreams Word, Exposé

Since it sold out a few years ago, the requests and feedback from listeners and musicians have shown this piece to be the most admired infinite repeat soundworld created by Steve so far. THE DREAM CIRCLE was first released in 1994 as a signed and numbered DigiPak, limited to 2500 copies. After it sold out, word continued to spread and the requests turned into demands. Through the inspiration of listener feedback, THE DREAM CIRCLE has been re-released on the Timeroom Editions series. This is not a limited release. It comes in a jewel case, not signed or numbered. Now is your chance to feel the slow heat of the dream circle.
