|Into the Majestic|
INTO THE MAJESTIC starts 2021 on high note of radiant optimism while traversing a consequential moment in time. Relentless in connecting to a stillpoint within, the title track "Into the Majestic" was premiered and filmed as it unfolded during Steve's October 24th 2020 Timeroom concert livestream. The shimmering multidimensional inner weavings are at once delicate and expansive, showing the way forward with grace and resoluteness. -- NOTE: A collectors' limited-edition CD (300 copies) will be available in early February 2021. If pre-ordering the CD before it releases, your entire order will be held until everything is in-stock.

Steve Roach, Serena Gabriel
In honor of Solstice 2020, a time of reflection and renewal, this is a moving piece created with collaborator Serena Gabriel. It was recorded and filmed live in the studio on October 31st for the Tucson Arizona All Soul's Ceremony, which was streamed for the event on November 8th, 2020.

Tomorrow's five deeply stirring transcendent electronic pieces draw from Steve's current high tide of creativity and introspection. Developed over the last six months within the stylistic mode he describes as "elegant futurism," cyclical melodic weavings flow and ebb in a graceful momentum infused with deep emotion. TOMORROW finds a rare balance between a feeling of floating and one of kinetic movement; this unexpected symmetry breathes life and energy into each piece.

A SOUL ASCENDS is a majestic, deeply moving sonic suspension drawn from the essence of Steve Roach's visionary ambient / electronic music. A vast and intimate holding-the-space of heart-centered serenity and compassion, the album couples the body to the eternal flow of a vaporizing weightlessness — back to a divine nothingness, the Tabula Rasa where everything began.

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.

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.

This mesmerizing masterpiece of multi-dimensional analog sequencer-spun music connects directly to Steve's passion for the interweaving of pure emotion, energy, delicate grace and driving flow. Interconnected melodic-rhythmic forms bloom into a constant morphing state of kaleidoscopic change. Over several months before this piece was recorded, many directions were explored, motifs developed and structures were revealed evolving up to the moment when ELECTRON BIRTH was realized in its final creation. This stellar performance was recorded with a live audience in the studio-like environment of Tucson's Galactic Center on February 11, 2018. The DNA of MOLECULES OF MOTION, SPIRAL REVELATION and SKELETON KEYS along with the tradition of great German EM school masters is woven into this vibrant long-form journey. The album concludes with "Cloud Currents", a deep drift zone created in The Timeroom. Post production fine-tuning by Steve and mastering by Howard Givens brings out even more detail and sonic impact from this peak experience.

INVISIBLE is a new long-form zone world Steve created while hunkering down in the Timeroom during the last few cold and rain-filled days of 2014. INVISIBLE is an ultra deep primordial dreamscape of shifting mercurial zones. Mist-shrouded amorphous phantasms appear and recede as distant substrata murmurs are felt as much as heard. Just a few days after its creation, it was offered as a gift on New Year's Eve and many were able to travel deeply into the new year in a collective global soundcurrent experience.

A Magnum Opus of pure oceanic sound and Roach's most sophisticated atmospheric work to date. The final track "Altus", Latin for both "high" and "deep", says much about this work. The most demanding and textural of Roach's work, it has more in common with 20th century avant-garde than other genres. A chilling and beautiful continuous flow of harmonic sound-worlds. Melody and harmony are present throughout in a surreal play of light and dark colors.

After nearly four decades and 40 albums of ambient electronics, veteran Norwegian composer Erik Wøllo takes a different approach -- there are no synthesizers! INFINITE MOMENTS is performed entirely on electric guitars processed with the diffused sustain of the EBow and layered note structures of harmonizers. No rhythms, only long, vast and engaging soundscapes. Minimal, extended and infinite in its essence, the album is a meditative inward journey of stillness and reflection -- an emotional mapping of the mind, beautifully weightless and contemplative.
