On LIE SYMMETRY, Aperus creates an ambient work of highly saturated color and sound, blending resonant analog synths, warm textures and a compelling selection of field recordings. Here, he works as sonic sculptor, exploring the edges, carving the sound with a hands-on approach. The result is an organic nuanced expression of a synesthetic vision, unified with a presention of his artwork. Defying easy categorization, the album combines elements of ambient, electronic, environmental and drone music to create a wide array of emotional tones. With all of its layers and contours, LIE SYMMETRY is sure to reward repeated listens and appeal to fans of various ambient styles and deep drone spaces.

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.
