Steve Roach Early June Update
May 31, 2010

Greetings Soundquest friends,

  • Erik Wollo's "Gateway" was selected as CD of the Month by the Echoes Radio show. This outstanding new release will be on sale at a great price the entire month of June.

  • By mid-June we will have sound samples up for the stirring new release from Steve, "Sigh Of Ages". All that have heard this in advance have been hard-pressed to find the right words to describe this moving testament to temporal nature and the unspoken subtle currents of life itself. The official release date is in early July.

  • Soundquest Fest 2010: Yes indeed, we keep announcing the impending pre-sales of tickets; it's coming very soon! We were just awaiting final details on a nearby hotel which will host guests and artists, and offer a special Soundquest Fest rate. Once everything is in place, the official pre-sale will commence with a special advance ticket sale discount.

    Down the Road...

  • We just got word that once again, we will have the worldwide exclusive for the next new David Parsons release, "Akash". This will be available Monday, September 6th (Labor Day).

  • "Mystic Chords & Sacred Spaces" Spotlight

    For June we're spotlighting the epic 4-CD tour-de-force "Mystic Chords & Sacred Spaces". Both parts will be on sale the entire month, as a buildup to "Sigh of Ages". For those who own the full set already, we invite you to give this a return listen. It continues to express that feeling in the air of Summer approaching, as expressed in our previous newsletter.

    "Mystic Chords & Sacred Spaces"
    Review by Frank MacEowen, April 2003

    Mystic Chords & Sacred Spaces
    "Mystic Chords & Sacred Spaces" is truly among the creme de la creme of Steve's work. It is an astonishing series of recordings. At times I found myself facing the darkest of the dark in the collective unconscious. Just as I thought I had reached the edge of where I could go in my voyaging, a tonal shift would occur and carry me into a delicious and heart-achingly beautiful space of unparalleled hope and faith. These recordings are both initiatory, and a veritable soul-retrieval in this time of widespread soul loss. In essence, this is healing sound.

    Arranged as a collection of four discs: "Mystic Chords & Sacred Spaces", "Labyrinth", "Recent Future", and "Piece of Infinity", each disc is a stand-alone musicscape experience. Yet, as a full collection "Mystic Chords & Sacred Spaces" is nothing short of initiation, each disc building upon the energy of the previous one, opening out into vast domains and vistas, carrying us deep into subterranean realms of luminosity.

    As a listener you will be guided through a potent inward journey of four soundworlds, each of which is rich, powerful, and distinct, yet woven together "Mystic Chords & Sacred Spaces" becomes a profound sonic voyage of purification, gestation, birth, and culmination. On such a voyage we encounter the archetypal themes of death and rebirth, creation and transformation, the moist domains of inner earth, and the spinning fractal cathedrals of the celestial worlds beyond. There is an expression that says "the soul is a feathered thing." Imbued with ancient memory, while simultaneously blazing new trails into the uncharted hinterlands of mind and space, "Mystic Chords & Sacred Spaces" is where the feathered-soul finds her wind.

    If this is your first exposure to the genius of soundcurrent maestro Steve Roach, prepare yourself for a stirring ride — a series of memorable visits to parallel worlds; a multi-textured mosaic of images, sensations, and quickening feelings. These recordings are not mere "tunes" or "songs." "Mystic Chords & Sacred Spaces" is a vibrant topography, a map leading us to the dwelling places of sentient and divine energy.
