Steve Roach: Bloom Ascension

1. Product Details

A resplendent expression of elegant futurism. Vinyl limited edition of 500. The rich melodic and rhythmic symmetry of this kaleidoscopic bloom of interlocking electronic music was created specifically for the canvas of time inherent to the LP format. Bloom Ascension's spiraling analog synth/sequencer-driven sound conveys vibrant energy and radiant optimism woven into the core of these living, breathing musical mandalas. This is Steve's first release conceptualized for LP since Desert Solitaire (1989). The timing is perfect for a statement like this - a natural expansion and evolution upon the sound of his recent Grammy-nominated Spiral Revelation (2017) and Molecules Of Motion (2018). Steve Roach is a leading American pioneer in the evolution of ambient/electronic music, helping shape it into what it is today. His career stretches across four decades and almost 200 releases. Drawing from a vast, unique and deeply personal authenticity, his albums are fueled by a lifetime dedicated to the soundcurrent. Steve is an artist operating at the pinnacle of his artform, driven by his passion and unbroken focus on creating a personal vision of electronic music steeped in emotion and organic subtlety. Handmade music cultivated on analog tools continues to be a staple of Steve's sound. He reflects, "This 4-part suite engages the listener in the spontaneous process in which the music evolved; it captures the sense of urgency and the direct transmission of pure emotion I felt at that moment in my Timeroom studio. Working this way, the infinite detail and visceral sonic impact of the large format and eurorack analog modular synthesizer systems feeds the mental states this music activates - hyper-alert, expansive and kinetic, yet suspended and calm at the center." "Music certainly lives beyond any one physical medium, or ultimately no medium at all except for perhaps the atmosphere we inhabit. On reflection, this rotational music feels absolutely at home playing on the spiraling medium of a physical format, as if being generated directly out of the device as it spins."
