Ascension of Shadows, Somewhere Else
by Chuck Van Zyl, Star's End
ASCENSION OF SHADOWS is 1998's studio collaboration between Steve Roach and Vidna Obmana and is representative of the duo's meditative style of music. Each of the three CDs in the set contains a lengthy and unique ambient environment, immersing the listener in a carefully designed soundworld. The experience is equally rewarding whether just below the threshold of perception, or through active listening.
