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.

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 WÃ¸llo 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.
