Michael Stearns, Erik Wøllo
2020 Projekt PRO371 (CD)
Soulful electronic sound-painting and evocative space music combine on Convergence, the debut collaboration between Norway's Erik Wøllo and America's Michael Stearns. Known for passionate soundtrack work on director Ron Fricke's Chronos, Baraka and Samsara, Stearns collaborates with Wøllo on his first indie-label-released non-film-score since 2001. Together, these guitarists/synthesists weave a haunting and shadowy world filled with longing melodies and alluring glimmering sonic textures.

Serena Gabriel (with Steve Roach)
2020 Soundquest Music SQ1 (CD)
Produced by Steve Roach
INANNA'S DREAM is a multi-instrumental ambient sonic odyssey of pure emotion and enchantment. Through the six electroacoustic offerings, feelings of yearning, vulnerability and epiphany are infused into a heart and soul stirring expression that accesses the collective well of human experience. The alchemical blend of archaic and contemporary musical techniques and instruments, including the voice, activate a powerful opening into sacred space.

A Soul Ascends
|Hi-Res 24-bit 96 kHZ |
2020 Projekt PRO373 (CD)
Reviewed by Paul Asbury Seaman, Bandcamp Daily, On An Overgrown Path, Star's End
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.
