                    • The Desert Eternal Livestream 9/26/20  This incredible two-hour live set was filmed and livestreamed from the intimacy of Steve’s Timeroom studio. The music dwells in the deeper end of Steve’s sonic biosphere. Surreal soundscapes, atmospheric immersions and deep drifts intermingle with earthbound tribal beats to activate the mythic imagination in a mega dose activation.This recording also marks the first time ever his classic STRUCTURES FROM SILENCE and pieces from DREAMTIME RETURN were filmed and recorded live in his studio. The creation of this set exactly as you hear it can be viewed at YouTube. Steve’s feeling on this recording and live video stream is “this is one for the ages, the one someone can look at in 50 years if they were to ask what was this guy all about?” This intimate and deeply moving livestream concert from from Steve’s Timehouse presents a studio quality sound with a hyper real in the moment energy that was further empowered by the fact that people world wide were tuning in. The Desert Eternal is without a doubt a powerful moment in time, and a high point in Steve’s sonic expressions.
