Nectar Meditation
Nectar Meditation
Steve Roach, Serena Gabriel
2020 Timeroom Editions TM48

NECTAR MEDITATION is the debut collaboration from Steve Roach (synths) and Serena Gabriel (harmonium, voice, temple bells). The focus of their work together is to provide a potent, immersive and transcendent experience through the power of sound. This intention is activated through the combination of acoustic instrumentation of ancient origins with a vast array of vintage and current analog synthesizers, creating a compelling new hybrid of archaic and contemporary sacred space music.

The Sky Opens
The Sky Opens
Steve Roach
2020 Projekt

Magnificent, majestic and voluminous truly describes the expansive sonic experience spanning this 140-minute 2-CD set. THE SKY OPENS represents a sublime moment in the evolution of Steve's 40-year history within the ambient/electronic genre. His sound manifests through an artistic process of real-time engaged interaction where his vision is channeled through a blend of technology, composition and improvisation, all captured in the moment of creation. This transpires for Steve in the studio as well as in live settings where mostly hardware instruments bring his studio environment to the stage.

Stillpoint
Stillpoint
Steve Roach
2020 Timeroom Editions TM47

These two long-form immersions were created within a week's time in mid-December 2019. Both present a sumptuous landscape of sonic nourishment, serenity and soft shadow with each piece contrasting each other perfectly, shifting from light to darker hues of deep sonic color translated into sublime delicate emotion. Perfect for infinite looped playback through the day into night, and into the realm of sleep as well. These soundworlds present Steve creating at the top of his skills and speaking in the language that he has innovated over four decades. Originally released at Bandcamp only, this is the limited-edition (500 copies) double-CD Eco-Wallet presentation.


Trance Archeology
Trance Archeology
Steve Roach
2019 Projekt PRO368

TRANCE ARCHEOLOGY maps a dynamic topography of eight multidimensional interwoven pieces born from the pulse, breath and heartbeat of sonic archeology, tapping into a uniquely symbiotic relationship between rhythm and atmosphere. The elemental core alive in TRANCE ARCHEOLOGY transmits an experience born anew yet unearthed for the first time; simultaneously it connects the epochs of trance, ceremonial and sacred music expressed through the tools born of today's technology.

The Disciple's Path
The Disciple's Path
Mark Seelig
2020 Projekt PRO369

After years of collaborations with Steve Roach, Byron Metcalf and Loren Nerell, Seelig returns to his solo work on this unique, engaging medicine music. Steeped in traditional Indian Ragas, the sultry ambient washes and occasional entrancing rhythms form the backdrop for Mark's organic and intimate Bansuri flute melodies. Potent and seductive, the pieces venture to the frontiers of consciousness, animating the 78 minutes of music with an inviting enticement into dimensions of the beyond.

After the release of their monumental Ascension of Shadows 3-CD set, in 1999/2000 Steve Roach & Vidna Obmana collaborated by mail on the soundtrack for a limited-edition interactive CD-ROM of photography by Martina Verhoeven. The hour of all-new material never appeared on a standalone CD, but here it is, for the first time, as a digital release. A floating long-from meditative piece, it's a unique ambient environment, immersing the listener in a carefully designed soundworld; rewarding whether just below the threshold of perception, or through active listening. The gradual shifting and drifting is music to get lost in. Though the changes over time are subtle — almost imperceptible — there is growth and change.
