Possible Planet by Steve Roach, released 21 June 2013 1. First Murmer 2. Gestation 3. Cell Memory CD JUST ADDED AND NAME YOUR PRICE DOWNLOAD THIS WEEK ONLY - MARCH 16-23 This pivotal long-form soundworld work pulls back the layers and increases the magnification to reveal a truly organic, analog-based core sound at a level not heard before in Steve's music. The metaphor of emerging lifeforms on a possible planet sets the mood for the three movements presented as a continuous immersive zone. My imagination travels to places no one can know, but Steve's works always have helped me travel and recall travels that connect within and beyond. A sacrament for my soul. This album, no different than his many profound sonic journeys goes into my sacred bundle. I will take this with me wherever I am in this and other worlds.
In 1988, inspired by the Peter Weir film The Last Wave, Roach journeyed to the Australian outback, with field recordings of aboriginal life inspiring his acknowledged masterpiece, the double-album Dreamtime Return. A year later, he teamed with percussionist Michael Shrieve and guitarist David Torn for The Leaving Time, an experiment in ambient jazz
The cover of On This Planet offers two of the many faces of Earth. One is a craggy, misty place of eerie cold, the other a wind-worn ancient desertscape. Both extremes are intense and lonely, yet extremely inviting in their inhospitableness. It is like being drawn toward the knife. Challenging "dark ambient" composer Steve Roach asks you to experience his compositions loud. This is no unobtrusive sonic background, but a sound atlas to the nether regions
