This is my favorite ambient record of all time. It's a perfect balance of melody and soundscape, deeply immersive and engaging with just the right number of elements that slowly evolve and modulate. It's great for meditation, sleep, or active listening. I can't recommend this album enough to any fan of the genre.
Favorite track: 04 (Piano Grains).
One of the first composers who drew me to ambient music and still one of my favorites. Amazing how each album is different as well as each track within each album, yet all reflect John's voice.
Favorite track: 03 (Elements).
Long form minimal ambient tracks for listening while working, meditating, sleeping and for focused listening. Meant to help reduce the sonic clutter of your day-to-day life. Reduce. Relax. Refresh.
Composed with field recordings processed using generative techniques creating long-form ambient tracks. The minimal and repetitive nature of these tracks brings focus to sonic textures and sound design elements while simultaneously allowing the music to recede into the background creating a space that is rejuvenating and refreshing.
Now THIS is the ultimate Christmas-gift..! Deep, soothing, comforting, and above all: classic Steve! This will be on repeat a lot.. Hopefully this will come as a CD/vinyl-release as well! Thanks Steve and best wishes from the heart. Berkdrums
